Fall Collision Monitoring Volunteers

Sunday, October 1, 2023
6:30 am9:00 am
Downtown Houston

Join this important community science initiative to make a difference by collecting data that will help inform decisions about how we can protect migrating birds from window strikes. This is a joint effort with Houston Audubon, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Texan by Nature, and other partners.

Collision monitoring will take place in the early mornings (around 6 -7 am depending on sunrise). Monitors will work in teams of 2-3, patrolling a 2-mile predetermined route around 10 buildings in downtown, collecting data on birds that have been injured or killed by building collisions.

Volunteers do not need to have expert knowledge about birds - data is entered into the iNaturalist app where others can help identify or confirm the species. Volunteers will receive thorough training on collision monitoring and data collection, as well as guidance on handling injured or dead birds that are found in the course of monitoring. All the tools and materials needed to perform the job will be provided, but we need enthusiastic and meticulous monitors to patrol the routes daily.

High Island Sanctuaries (Boy Scout Woods, Smith Oaks)

Meet us at this internationally known birding hot spot and help us beautify one of our 4 nature sanctuaries here, improving both the visitor infrastructure and wildlife habitat. This is a great opportunity to get outside while making a difference.

Volunteers who help out at High Island Work Days are treated to a delicious meal prepared by our lunch crew.

Work Days are held once a month, October through March on the second Saturday of the month. We start work around 8:30 AM and work until about noon, when we break for lunch, provided by Houston Audubon and prepared by the lunch crew. Lunch at the picnic area of Boy Scout Woods is a good chance to visit with other volunteers and recharge from a morning of exercise and work . After lunch, we take about an hour to tie up any loose ends and clean up. Please bring your own refillable water bottles and lots of ice water.

Volunteers do not need to have expert knowledge about birds - data is entered into the iNaturalist app where others can help identify or confirm the species. Volunteers will receive thorough training on collision monitoring and data collection, as well as guidance on handling injured or dead birds that are found in the course of monitoring. All the tools and materials needed to perform the job will be provided, but we need enthusiastic and meticulous monitors to patrol the routes daily.
