North American Migration Count

The North American Migration count is held on the second Saturday each May; this year that date is May 12, 2012. Volunteers are mobilized to count birds on this day in order to provide a "snapshot of migration."  For more information on International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) click here. They also provide a link to e-Bird, so that you can use that link to report your data. Instructions for entering your data into this extraordinary database can be found there, or in the newsletters which you can download below.

Since the NAMC was initiated in KS in 1993, we have had counts in the following counties (although not in all counties in all years):

Barber, Barton, Cherokee, Cowley, Crawford, Doniphan, Douglas, Finney, Ford, Geary, Greenwood, Greeley, Hamilton, Harvey, Hodgeman, Jefferson, Kearney, Kiowa, Labette, Leavenworth, Linn, Lyon, Logan, McPherson, Morris, Montgomery, Morton, Neosho, Pottawatomie, Pratt, Reno, Riley, Saline, Scott, Sedgwick, Shawnee, Sherman, Stafford, and Washington

This year we would like to cover all of these counties and more, if possible.
