Birders look forward to the annual Spring Bird Count to see beautiful tropical bird species that move through the Triad on the way to their breeding grounds further north. This year the count is sponsored by the Piedmont Bird Club.
This bird count is similar to Audubon’s Christmas Bird Count in which teams count species and individual numbers of birds in assigned areas within a designated 15-mile count circle. Some teams need additional counters for all or part of the day.
New birders are welcome to join the fun; there’s always at least one experienced birder on each team to help with identification.
Birding with some teams is mostly riding through their areas, but some teams do a lot of walking along trails and in parks, so opportunities abound for people of all physical and skill levels.
Bring binoculars and field guides if you have them and something to drink.
