John Thatcher Native Garden (formerly Demonstration Garden) is a busy third stop during the Fall Migratory Bird Count.

Mark your calendars for the 2020 Fall Migratory Bird Count Saturday Sept. 19, 8 a.m.-10:30 a.m. Meet at the Island Community Center. Bring binoculars. Masks required.

Following Audubon bird count rules, birders will make 15 five-minute stops from West End to East End. At each timed stop, birders count birds and call out what they see.

The fall 2019 bird count began under overcast skies, with thick clouds and fog, but the weather this Saturday is predicted to be sunny, in the 60s!
