NYSOA Winter Waterfowl Count with Frank: Adults/Teens
Count Leader: Frank Quevedo, Executive Director, South Fork Natural History Museum
At one time, a great variety of waterfowl wintered on Long Island; now, due to habitat loss, food scarcity, and the introduction of nonnative species of water birds, our wintering population of waterfowl is slowly diminishing. To assess this situation and record the number of overwintering waterfowl, the New York State Ornithological Association (NYSOA) sponsors an annual waterfowl count throughout the State. If you are an experienced or intermediate birder, we would be delighted to have you join us. To do so, call count leader Frank Quevedo at 631.537.9735 for detailed information.This free program is for adults and teens who are experienced birders.
Please note that, as mandated by the latest State Executive Order regarding COVID-19 safety precautions, our outdoor nature walks and programs will at all times follow stringent six-feet distancing separation protocols required by the Department of Health for the safety of our participants and environmental educators. We will provide masks and gloves for all attendees.
Advanced reservations are required for all events. To register for this program, which has limited enrollment please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 631-537-9735. Spots will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
