January Waterfowl Census
January 14th marks the first day of the official waterfowl count sponsored by the NYSDEC . To celebrate the day,Steve Nanz will lead a two hour walk in Prospect Park.
However I need volunteers most needy a driver to count the coastal sections of Dead Horse Bay,all of Rockaway peninsula west of the Marine Park Bridge. Paul Keim may do this section experienced veteran of the counts we've done the past decades. I will be out of town leading the BBC. This segment is more challenging due to extensive walking.
The second location is Bush Terminal Park to Army Terminal Pier at 58th St.
The count day can be any day for that week but the earlier the better with weather concerns.
I have the count forms with all required details to be filled and sent to the master compiler.
If interested email me.
