Biologists with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission are asking the public to join the N.C. Bird Atlas team to participate in the Early Winter Bird Atlas.
Nearly 100 bird species migrate to North Carolina this time of year and the NC Bird Atlas needs the public’s assistance in recording sightings.
Birders, hunter and conservation enthusiasts are encouraged to get involved. Places to observe birds range from your backyard to open bodies of water. Bird observations can be logged online by using the Ebird portal.
Migrating birds will be present in North Carolina for a short window of time. The Early Winter Bird Atlas season runs Nov. 1–Dec. 31.
