Winter Shorebird Survey (Palm Coast)
February 1 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Meet at Flagler Pier at 8am for this statewide citizen science survey.
****This survey is a great opportunity for beginners: at arrival, you will be paired with a more experienced birder and provided with a photo sheet of the approx. 30 species we are searching for. Only shorebirds sitting on the beach are counted (no flying birds), so they’re easier to find and identify. Come work on your shorebirds!****
Here are the two photo sheets we use in case you’d like to study ahead on your own (NOT required!):

Terns & Gulls ID sheet: https://fl.audubon.org/sites/default/files/audubon_beach_birds_identification_terns_gulls.pdf
Accessibility: low – walking on beach sand
