Christmas Bird Count at Tyler Arboretum

December 15, 2018 @ 5:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Phone: 610-566-9134

Each year between mid-December and early January, thousands of volunteers in North and South America collect data on bird sightings. Tyler invites you to be a part of the tradition. Data gathered during the count is used to assess the health
of bird populations and guide conservation action. Join Tyler’s experienced birders to search for owls and other nocturnal and dawn birds. After breakfast at a nearby restaurant (on your own), venture out again to look for both common and unusual birds.

Know Your Birds

Bird sightings can happen anywhere whether you’re looking out your kitchen window or traveling to far-away places. But can you actually tell one from another? Don’t despair, there are clues you can use to identify many species. Cover the art and science of bird identification when you discuss such field marks as overall size and shape, bill structure, basic/alternative plumage, sex differences, distinctive postures when feeding or resting and much more. Learn a process to identify birds that includes their behaviors, the time of day, the time of the year and the locations seen. Leave with the visual skills and auditory skills to enhance your enjoyment of the avian world around you.

Reminder: October Big Day—6 October 2018

Every year for the last four years Global Big Day has set new heights for a single day of birding. This massively international collaborative birding event has been so great we want to have another worldwide eBird Big Day in October. Why October? Because spring is rejuvenating the southern hemisphere and the northern reaches of the world are in the midst of migration. No matter where you are, we’re confident you can find some great birds on 6 October. Let’s see what we can find together on the first October Big Day!
