Tuesday, September 5, 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.

Bird Week Volunteer Orientation

Wednesday, September 6, 2023
6:00 pm7:00 pm
Zoom Meeting

Houston Bird Week is a celebration of the important role Houston plays in the journey of billions of migratory birds and the everyday lives of our resident birds. In addition to Houston's vital location along the Gulf of Mexico, the growing popularity of planting native plants, restoring prairies, bird-friendly education programs, and Houston's Lights Out for Birds program were among the many efforts and programs that gained Houston the Bird City designation in 2020.

Houston Audubon and local conservation partners arrange a week of virtual and in-person events centered around our region’s birds and wildlife – from birding opportunities and watch parties to trivia, movie night, and more, there's something for all Houstonians to enjoy. With these multiple events happening every day of the week, we will need lots of volunteer support!

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.
