The first guided bird walk and eBird workshop will be held this Saturday, February 1, 2020. This will be the kickoff workshop for the Kodiak Big Year Challenge. We will meet in the parking lot of Kodiak College at 10 am. The group will work together, identifying birds and making lists at one or two nearby locations. We will then return to the college where new users will be introduced to eBird in a hands-on fashion, exploring its powerful tools and inputting the day's bird lists.
This event is intended for birders of all levels, especially those who are less familiar with eBird. Ideally, sign up for the Big Year Challenge before attending, but we can help you get registered Saturday if needed. Binoculars will be available for those who need them.
**Also, the January prize will be either the Sibley Bird App (or similar bird guide if you are not an app user). Winner will be randomly drawn from those who are registered for the Big Year Challenge by the end of this week. So you may as well sign up already!
