On the first Wednesday of every month, RVAS will conduct a bird count at Agate Lake
approximately two miles east of the Hwy 62/Hwy 140 intersection. Meet in the parking
lot on the EAST side of the lake. Enter from Dry Creek Road and drive through the gate
which will be open through the summer and early fall. The walk will begin at 830 a.m.
This is an ongoing citizen science project to record the numbers of the different
species observed by the walk participants and enter the data in the Cornell
Ornithological Laboratory's e-bird database. You don't need to be an experienced
birder to join in, but taking part will help you become one.
Coordinator and leader of the First Wednesday walk is Murray Orr (541-857-9050,
email@example.com). Please contact Murray if you are willing to help him with these
tasks, for example, by leading the walk when he is not available, opening and closing
the entrance gate on walk days, or helping him record bird sightings during the walk.
