On Thursday November 15th the annual winter bird counting season on the mainland started. The Estonian Ornithological Society invites both experienced ornithologists and newcomers to join in.
During the winter the birds should be counted on three occasions in a territory and path of one’s own choice. The first counting period is on November 15 – 28. The observer must recognize wintering birds (up to 40 species) from their calls and exterior. For the count a path about 10 km long should be chosen that may run through different landscapes.
