South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo)—Winter Waterfowl Count from Dawn to Dusk
Field Count Leader: Frank Quevedo, South Fork Natural History Museum Executive Director. Call (631) 537-9735 for further information.
At one time a great variety of waterfowl wintered on Long Island. Now, due to habitat loss, food scarcity and the introduction of nonnative species of water birds, our wintering population of waterfowl is slowly diminishing. To assess this situation and record the number of overwintering waterfowl, the New York State Ornithological Association sponsors an annual waterfowl count throughout the state. Experienced birder or otherwise, sign on as a member of this year’s Amagansett to Shinnecock count team.
There is no charge for SoFo Members (unless otherwise stated). Non-members $7 per adult; $5 per child. Fees include admission to the museum on the day of the program. *Reservations are required for all walks, workshops, and programs*
