Turkey Point Bird Count


Maryland Biodiversity Project is pleased to announce Maryland's first fall morning flight count


Each year, millions of birds migrate through the eastern United States between breeding grounds in North America and wintering grounds in Central and South America. Bird populations may be affected by environmental changes at any point along their migration. To further document bird populations, Maryland Biodiversity Project is pleased to announce the Turkey Point Bird Count to monitor fall migration along the Chesapeake Bay.

Turkey Point is the southernmost point of the Elk Neck Peninsula in Cecil County, Maryland, and a natural gathering point for southbound migrating birds. The Turkey Point Bird Count will document fall bird migration here from August 1st through November 15th.
