Waterbird Watch Dates for Autumn of 2017

Our Waterbird Watch Technician, Calvin Brennan, will begin his daily counts at the Watch site at Harrington Beach State Park with a different range of dates this fall. We recognize that some waterfowl species migrate south later than formerly, and our date range this fall will start two weeks later and end two weeks later to reflect this. Dates this fall will be September 15 to December 5. Please visit Calvin at the WGLBBO blind just south of the rocky point on the shoreline (south of the main beach). He is there in fall for 6 hours per day, Mon. through Sat., starting at dawn.
