mammals) as well as the flora of the areas we visit. Join us!

To get the most out of your birding experience, remember, birds
are wild creatures and, like us, have homes, need food and shelter, and
protect their families. Letís welcome them to our area by giving them
safe habitat in which to thrive and raise their young and by observing
• Above all, respect the welfare of the bird at all times.
• Respect the habitat by staying on trails and pathways.
• Respect property lines and signs; do not trespass.
• Be quiet when observing and donít make sudden moves; it
could cause nesting birds to leave their nests and
expose their eggs to
prolonged heat or predators. Nesting colonial birds are particularly
susceptible to disturbance
and may even abandon their eggs, so watch
from a distance.
• Be considerate of others in your group; share your knowledge or learn from others more experienced.
• Limit the use of recordings or
other methods to attract birds; never use in heavily birded areas or for
species that are Threatened, Endangered, or of Special
Concern, or that are rare in the area.
