Event: Lights Out Texas Bird Spring Survey
Project Description: Surveys are conducted in downtown Dallas.
Find and identify birds that didn’t make the trip through the downtown high rises successfully.
Data collected will help future bird populations.
Survey started March 13, ends May 31
Meet at Perot Museum Parking lot 5:45am, return to the Perot parking lot at 8am.
BEGIN: Promptly at 6 AM.
PARKING: Enter the Perot Special Event/Permit Parking Lot by way of Field & River Streets. Push the intercom button at the gate and let security know you are there for Lights Out. They will admit you.
WALK: We’ll walk between 3-7 miles at a leisurely pace – comfortable shoes are recommended.
CLOTHING: Light-colored clothing is a good idea for high visibility. You will be crossing many streets on foot.
RESTROOMS: Sporadically available along the survey route
GEAR: A flashlight or headlamp helps you see birds in the pre-dawn light. A camera phone, with the iNaturalist app https://www.inaturalist.org/ downloaded, helps you document your findings but is not required.
END: We return to the Perot parking lot at 8 AM.
