Listen to the calls of the wild during a drive or hike while recording bird observations in the Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever Call of the Wild- Nebraska Birdblitz. Use the iNaturalist App under the Nebraska Bird Month Birdblitz to identify and record bird sightings or audible calls. Species of interest for this weekend are: Upland Game Birds—Greater Prairie Chickens, Sharp-tail Grouse, Northern Bobwhite Quail, Ring-neck Pheasant. These birds are currently in their breeding season where grouse will be gathered lekking (breeding ground hotspots), and male pheasant and quail will be claiming their territory vocally. This event is not limited to game birds, please record ANY bird observation. This event is FREE!
This event is part of the Nebraska May Birdblitz Collaboration. Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever of Nebraska, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Fontenelle Forest, Audubon at Rowe, Audubon of Omaha, and Bird Conservancy of the Rockies join to educate and provide hands-on experiences in learning about and protecting our bird populations.
