Planning for the 2013 Tucson
Bird Count is underway! Previous participants are currently
selecting their routes, but we also need new volunteers!
Participating is easy - you adopt a route of your choice,
survey birds at designated sites along the route on the
morning of your choice, and then enter your data online!
If you are interested, please see the Participation
Overview for information on how to register and adopt
a route for this year's count.The count will run from
April 15-May 15, and there are routes available all over
We are also in the process of revamping this website,
stay tuned for improvements.
PARK MONITORS NEEDED!
With the 2010 annual count successfully completed, we
are trying to find a few good birders to adopt some of
our available Park sites (which are monitored quarterly).
Great spots like Tanque Verde Wash, Tucson Botanical Gardens,
Case Natural Resources Park, and the Cortaro Mesquite
Bosque are all available. Visit
our Park Monitoring page for more info!
How can you help?
Lend your birding skills to bird monitoring,
science, and conservation. Adopt a route for our annual
spring count (April 15 - May 15), or choose your own area
to adopt for the Park Monitoring
Program. Then, spend a morning (of your choosing)
counting birds on your area, and enter your data on-line.
You'll see results, including distribution maps
for most species observed, on this website. See the Participation
Overview for more info.
