Upcoming Events

Thursday, January 24th, 2019 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Location: National Wildlife Federation, Wildlife Center Drive 11100, Reston, Virginia

Join Greg Butcher, Audubon Society of Northern Virginia board member and migratory species coordinator for U.S. Forest Service International Programs, for an introduction to waterfowl identification. Get to know many of the species that winter in the open waters of our region. You’ll learn how to tell a Bufflehead from a Hooded Merganser, and, with luck, you will see the beautiful Tundra Swans that winter in our area. Strategies will include identification by shape and color pattern.

This workshop will include an outdoor field trip and bird walk on Saturday, January 26—details will be given in class.

After the workshop and field trip, you’ll be ready to rally for a tally during our 11th Annual Waterfowl Count, Saturday, February 9, and Sunday, February 10.

This event is free, but space is limited (30 max).

Saturday, February 2nd, 2019 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Location: National Wildlife Federation, Wildlife Center Drive 11100, Reston, Virginia

Get ready for the 2019 Great Backyard Bird Count on February 15-18 by attending the GBBC Workshop, hosted by the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia! This free workshop will teach you how to count and how to report your count, and then some “real time” practice. Registration required. 

Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time.
