Spring bird count scheduled
The 23rd Annual Conanicut Island Spring Bird Count will be held on Saturday, May 12.
Interested birders should meet at the Jamestown Police Station conference room at 6:30 a.m. with binoculars, field guides and appropriate hiking/ walking shoes. The group will be divided into four groups to cover the island in search of as many different bird species as possible.
The record number of species seen in past years is 114 and the group often observes nearly 100 species, including many species of warblers and other migrants. For information, contact Candy Powell, 423-1492 or Evelyn Rhodes at 423-1254.
Birders unable to participate in the field that day, may phone in their observations to Candy or Evelyn.
