Robin Migration Update: February 4, 1997
Where do robins spend the winter, anyway? Let's find out! Before their spring migration begins this year, we'd like to know if you have robins in your town. We hope you'll help with Journey North's annual Winter Robin Round-Up!
Winter Robin Round-Up: February 4 - February 14, 1997
1. Go outside and look for robins. Ask your neighbors if they have sighted robins. Call the local nature center or Audubon Chapter and ask for their help. Contact your friends and relatives in other parts of North America. Ask everybody you know to help you look for robins!
2. When you spot a robin, let us know! To report your field observations to Journey North simply press the blue button on the left labeled, "Report Your Sightings". A Field Data form will appear.
3. Remember, you have until February 14th, 1997 to send your sightings! (After that, we'll collect reports of the FIRST robin each person sees this spring, in order to track their migration.)
4. We'll collect all sightings and post a summary for you on February 18th. We'll also give you last winter's Winter Robin Round-Up data, so you can compare the results.
Thank you for your help!!
