Great Backyard Bird Count
February 17@4:30 am-6:00 pmFree
Join STINAPA in a bird watching and counting event as part of the worldwide Great Backyard Bird Count on Saturday February 17th at LVV Every year, nature lovers around the world and count birds in their own garden or at a different location during a weekend in February. The count for this year is scheduled from the 16th to 19th of February. Last year, more than 200,000 people worldwide took part in this count.
STINAPA’s request to the community of Bonaire is to count and register all the bird species that can be seen during the weekend of February 16th to 19th. Be sure to note the date, time and place of the observations. For example, on February 16, for 15 minutes or longer, you write down the name and the amount of each bird you see. The next day you may be on the beach and then you do the same thing you did the previous day. At the end of the day, mail your lists with the data (pictures also welcome) to firstname.lastname@example.org or you may upload your list yourself on eBird.org
On Saturday the 17th of February, STINAPA will watch and count birds at LVV on Kaminda Lagun from 4.30 to 6 pm, and you are welcome to join. For participation call 717-8444 and also immediately indicate if you need a binocular. There are no costs involved but donations are always welcome.
