BirdQuest 2019 takes place on October 3 on the beautiful Four Oaks Plantation in Brooks County, Georgia. This is your opportunity to support our most important annual fundraising event effort. Many thanks to the staff at Four Oaks for providing us with this opportunity to document the bird diversity of this stellar property. Four Oaks features wonderful longleaf pine forests with native groundcover, bays and other forested wetlands, and a mix of old farmlands and oldfield forests that are sure to harbor a great diversity of birds.
Staff with the Stoddard Bird Lab will rise before dawn and count all the species they can see on Four Oaks Plantation in a single day. By day’s end, we hope to have 100 species tallied.
Please make your pledge now for the species seen on October 3. BirdQuest 2019 supports a graduate stipend for Heather Levy ($15,500) and will enable her to wrap up her graduate study of cavity-nesting birds in the Red Hills region in May 2020.
