Volunteers for observing birds

Volunteers are needed to observe birds and collect data in Door and Kewaunee Counties. The Wisconsin Society for Ornithology is running the Atlas Project which takes in data and tries to determine which native birds are increasing or decreasing in population. The last Atlas Project was done from 1995-1999. The second Atlas Project goes through the end of 2019. Adam Sinkula is the Kewaunee County Coordinator of the Atlas Project. Sinkula says it’s important to get local volunteers because they will know the birds of the area better than someone outside the area.



Sinkula added that you don’t need to be a bird expert to become a volunteer. They have volunteers who are complete novices at birdwatching. Sinkula encourages volunteers to use tools that can be found at the Atlas website to help collect bird data.
