Spring Bird Eco-Blitz
May 18 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
JCWC, Portland Parks & Recreation and the Friends of Errol Heights are teaming up to bring you a special edition Spring Bird Eco-Blitz at Errol Heights Park! Come learn how to use the eBird phone app in collecting wildlife data.
Experienced birders will provide team leadership to newcomers and those interested in birding. Small groups will walk the path together, stopping to listen and look for birds at designated lookout points. Group one begins at 7:30am with a quick lesson before hitting the trail to collect data on paper data sheets we will provide you with. At the end of the path everyone will practice entering their sighting on eBird together. At 9am Group two will begin following the same path and process as the morning. Please feel welcome to stay for both groups if you prefer!
