The Great Backyard Bird Count at Pipestem
Fly like the birds to Pipestem Resort State Park for the Great Backyard Bird Count! This free, fun and easy event can be enjoyed by bird watchers of all ages and skill levels, and helps create a record of bird populations in West Virginia.
Join park naturalist Julie McQuade at the park’s nature center at 10 a.m. From there, participants will take an easy walk to find birds around the park. Bring binoculars if possible, but there are some available at the park for those who don’t have any. Participants are asked to count birds for at least 15 minutes, or longer if they wish. Recorded sighting will be reported to Project FeederWatch at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and to the West Virginia Winter Bird Count for the WV Wildlife Diversity Program.
