Hi Tweets,

We are looking for volunteers with good observation and bird identification
skills, an attention to detail, a love for the marsh, and the willingness
to volunteer three or four hours at a time. Volunteers on this project can
choose to volunteer as often as every month, and as infrequently as once a
year. In this survey we get the privilege of visiting spots in the marsh
that are not open to the public, so a reasonable level of mobility is

We will be hosting a volunteer training day at the marsh on Saturday, March
19, from 9:00am-noon, where we will provide instruction on the survey
protocols, give a tour of the survey points, and share some of the early
results of the project.

The goal is to keep this survey going for at least 10 years, so as you can
imagine we need a lot of volunteer help!

*Project Overview*
Started in December 2018, the Avian Habitat Use at Edmonds Marsh Project is
a twice monthly survey in which we are documenting the interaction between
avian visitors and the marsh’s habitat. This survey will give us a better
understanding of how the birds that breed, overwinter, and use the marsh on
migration interact with the site, and will help us make more informed
recommendations on how the site can be best managed for birds.

If you are interested in being a part of this survey and contributing to
bird conservation, contact Brian Zinke (director at pilchuckaudubon.org) to
get in on the action.

We look forward to your participation!

***Please contact us to register prior to coming.***
