(herons, egrets, spoon...bills, pelicans, terns, and others) through census and population counts in the spring, patrolling and managing rookery islands, and raising public awareness about these nesting birds. The TERN program provides community members an opportunity to participate in citizen science by monitoring these waterbirds in foraging habitats year round.
is designed to teach participants simple protocols for surveys, filling out datasheets, and for collecting valuable data that is used by Audubon, USFWS, TPWD, and many others. The field component will take participants to locations where birds are foraging and offer opportunities to practice birding skills and data collection for the TERN program. Songbirds, raptors, shorebirds, and many other birds will be documented in the survey.
Dress for going outdoors, bring a water bottle, binoculars, and your favorite bird books (optional).#birding #Houston #UHCL #ClearLakeTX
