Climate change is the biggest threat to birds around the world,
and Audubon volunteers and scientists are working hard to understand what birds are telling us about it.
We need YOU to help us tell the story of the birds we love by collecting vital information on how birds are already shifting their ranges in response to climate change with Audubon’s Climate Watch program.
St. Johns County Audubon Society is looking for volunteers to help with the winter survey that takes place between January 15, 2019 and February 15, 2019.
The target species for this survey is the Eastern Bluebird. The following link will provide additional information for participants. https://www.audubon.org/news/participant-resources-climate-watch

The Climate Watch program divides the country into Climate Watch squares of 10 km by 10 km.
St. Johns County Audubon is recruiting teams of 1-3 people to survey a Climate Watch square in St. Johns County once during the January 15, 2019 to February 15, 2019 timeframe.
Teams will stop at 12 spots in each square for 5 minutes each to record birds observed.
The image to the left (also attached as a pdf document) depicts the Climate Watch squares for St. Johns County. Blue shaded squares have teams identified. climate_squares_st_johns_county.pdf
Unshaded squares are available for individuals or teams to select!
