Cameron County Birding Spotlight

October 14-17, 2022

 

Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology (PSO) is promoting counties across the state to explore its hotspots and find as many birds as we can.

 

On October 14-17, join us as we lead a concentrated effort to bird Cameron County!  This is truly one of the state’s most under-birded counties but there is so much to explore. 

 

As a group, we want to document as many birds as possible during this extended weekend. Birders are invited to tag along with trip leaders or explore the county’s game lands, state park and wild areas on their own terms.

 

We will be using the WhatsApp rare bird text group set up for that area to get out the word for rarities and group information, and an eBird Trip Report to document the four-day bird count.  For anyone who is going to be birding during 4-day birding spotlight, we ask you share your ebird checklists with PSO Birding Data then we can keep track easier.  We will also be providing an Ebird Trip Report link where pictures, checklists, etc will be available for everyone to enjoy. 

 

We will be sharing pics and updates on the PA Wilds Birding Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/groups/pawildsbirding

 

Birders of all skill levels are invited to join-in and contribute!  If you just want to learn more about birds or you can help others and our challenge, we want you to be involved!

 

COVID-19 Guidelines: Social distancing will be stressed in group situations and masks will be encouraged in close quarters. The sharing of equipment (i.e., spotting scopes) is discouraged without proper cleaning measures or no touch.
