MDC needs experienced birders to help with breeding bird survey

Calling Missouri birders who know their birds by sight and sound. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) needs volunteers to assist with six vacant bird observation routes in Missouri as part of the 2024 North American Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) now through July 7.

The six Missouri BBS routes that need volunteers are: Akers, Blodgett, Cassville, Deventer, Madison, and New Hampton. 

Volunteers will need to conduct their survey one day during the May 27-July 7 survey period.

BBS is a long-term, large-scale, international bird monitoring program that started in 1966. The purpose of the BBS is to track the status and trends of North American bird populations. 

In breeding plumage, the upperparts of the female American goldfinch are greenish yellow with dark wings and tail. The underparts are pale yellow. It is one species volunteers may see and hear during the annual North American Breeding Bird Survey.
