Commons Ford Bird Survey

7:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Join members of the Commons Ford Prairie Committee to survey the birds at Commons Ford. This survey will be our fourth official bird survey for the park, and we’ll be surveying all parts of the park. It works like the Hornsby Bend survey. We’ll split into three teams, and each team will survey a specific area of the park. We’ll come back together afterwards and do a countdown to determine what was seen and/or heard. If you enjoy birding Commons Ford, come join us for the survey! Please note, however, that this is a survey – count and go! If you are looking for a more casual field trip, please sign up for one of the monthly bird walks. All skill levels are welcome to participate. Meet us at the parking lot behind the main house at 7:00 am. No registration is required, just show up. Contact Shelia Hargis at Shelia.hargis@gmail.com with any questions.
Some of us will likely arrive early to listen for owls and other noctural birds. Email Shelia if you want to get in on that fun. And if you want, bring a picnic lunch for after the survey. We’ll sit on the porch and enjoy the park and each other for a little longer.
