How you can help NY’s breeding birds

Description: Learn about the third Breeding Bird Atlas in NY and how you can help this community science project. Atlasing is a great way for birders of all abilities to learn about birds while directly contributing to science and conservation. This year is the final year of the Atlas. Can you help us fill in a gap for your favorite species? Do you like to bird somewhere unique or remote? The Atlas is a statewide survey and you can participate at any time using the free eBird app. While atlasing, you will explore new areas, search for clues into the secret lives of birds, and expand your understanding and appreciation of birds. Whether you have been sitting on the fence about contributing to the project or have never heard of the Atlas before, now is your chance to contribute to the largest community science project in the state. There won’t be another atlas until 2040! Attend this talk to find out how you can participate and make an impact for bird conservation.


Bio:  Julie started birding while working in Ithaca as a bird conservation intern with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Audubon. She traveled for several years doing field work around the globe, then spent several years chasing high-elevation birds around the Northeast and Hispaniola as the coordinator for Mountain Birdwatch, before she went on to earn her Master’s degree studying the impacts of climate change on Cassia Crossbill in southern Idaho. After spending several years abroad, she is now the Project Coordinator for the third Breeding Bird Atlas in NY. She also serves as the co-chair of the North American Ornithological Atlas.
