Waterfowl Survey

Spokane Audubon Society is assisting Ducks Unlimited and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife with Waterfowl Surveys in the scablands of Eastern Washington.  They are trying to determine usage to better understand the dispersion and needs of migrating waterfowl.

Waterfowl surveys will start the first full week of February and continue through the end of April.  Brush up on your waterfowl ID skills and help provide data that will assist in the protection of the pothole habitat that is essential during migration. Spokane Audubon Society is responsible for counting the waterfowl at Reardan Audubon Lake. It takes about a half day of your time.  People go out in pairs and the survey takes about 1.5 hours to complete plus travel time.  You do not need to get up at the crack of dawn for these surveys.  If you are interested in exploring other areas of Eastern Washington, that can be arranged as well. Contact Lindell Haggin by email at lindell4118@comcast.net for further information.
