Winter Waterbird Survey

The Winter Waterbird Survey is a four stop point count conducted bi-weekly during the non-breeding season. It tracks the diversity and abundance of geese, swans, ducks, shorebirds, raptors, and other birds that frequent the wetlands of the Jug Bay area. View the results from our latest survey.Point 1 - Observation Deck.

Our wetlands are an important stop for migrating birds in the spring and fall. Many stay for the winter as well. Over 60 species have been documented. View the seasonal abundance table for what birds to expect and when.
