Summer Bird Count
The summer count is sponsored by Indiana Audubon Society (IAS) to track what species are present and to record breeding activity. Birds can be counted from June 1st through July 31st, taking care to prevent counting the same birds twice. Time and distance should be recorded for actual birding trips, but birds seen casually while going about daily activities can also be included without consideration of time and distance.
Summer count report forms may be downloaded from indianaaudubon.org/bird-counts. The instructions are included on the form. Or, if you are unable to download the form, I’ll be happy to send you a hard copy. Please return forms to Louise Fessenden at email@example.com by August 8th to be compiled and sent to the IAS compiler.

SBEAS Wildlife Sanctuary
Pecan, blueberry and perfectly plain pancakes will be served hot off the outdoor griddle in our open shelter house nestled in the woods. Please bring your own table service and a free-will donation.
Your donations help provide the bird seed for our winter feeding program and maintenance of the Sanctuary.
The mission of the South Bend-Elkhart Audubon Society is to promote stewardship of our natural resources with a special emphasis on birds. We achieve this goal through education, conservation, philanthropy and fellowship with others having similar goals.
