    Mountain Birdwatch (MBW) is a citizen science effort that monitors songbirds breeding in the montane fir and spruce forests of the Northeast. MBW data provide the only region-wide source of population information on these high-elevation breeding birds. Join MBW as a volunteer, and attend this training to learn about MBW’s background and how MBW data are being used for conservation, as well as identification tips for each target species, survey protocol review, and point count practice.  Please RSVP to Judith Scarl if you plan to attend.
