NYC Audubon is organizing its 2nd NYC Shorebird Blitz of the year on *Saturday,
September 3rd*. We're interested in getting a 1-day snapshot of shorebird
activity each spring and fall throughout NYC - not just numbers and species
but what the birds are doing as well.

If you're around this Labor Day weekend and are interested in
participating, all you need to do is:

- Email me to sign up for a location to count at - it can be anywhere in
NYC where there may be shorebirds! Please note your experience level with
shorebird identification, as there are some locations that would be more
appropriate for expert shorebirders, some that would be great for eager
beginners, and some for those in between. Whether there were no shorebirds,
just a few, or several hundred, we want to know about it.

- Go out and count at your assigned location anytime on September 3rd!
You can do it alone, with a friend, or as a group.

- Send a completed datasheet back to me afterwards (or share your eBird
checklist with "NYCAudubon").

Our count coincides with World Shorebirds Day, so we encourage you to also
sign up for their global count at
and then share your eBird checklist with "WorldShorebirdsDay".

Every count counts!
