  • Breeding Bird Blitz

    June 9, 2023 - June 19, 2023 @ 

    Join Manada Conservancy again this year for the PA Society of Ornithology's Breeding Bird Blitz! This is a chance for both those new to birding and experienced birders to head outside, look at birds, and record what they see. This is citizen science at its best! Not only does it help gather data about what birds are breeding in our area, but it’s great to get outdoors and have some fun. Manada Conservancy has had a team for the last three years (we are the Manada Bird-brains), and this year we will be at it again, visiting some new and interesting sites, as well as some of our preserved properties. This is also a chance to help advance the habitat protection work of the three organizations chosen for 2023: Hawk Mountain, South Middleton Township, and the Foundation for Sustainable Forests. We have benefitted from this program in the past and love to support others who are protecting important bird habitat. 

    We will develop a schedule of times and locations as June approaches. If you are interested in participating on a walk or leading a walk, please contact Sally Zaino at  Donations to the Manada Bird-brains team can be made here.
