2021 Global Shorebird Counts  9/1 to 9/7 as part of World Shorebirds Day

The Global Shorebird Counts, held every year around World Shorebirds Day (6 September), is one of the key events of World Shorebirds Day. In 2021 the count will be held September 1 to  7.

This program demonstrates the importance of fieldwork, supports observers in improving counting skills, contributes to the increase of the number of birdwatchers and scientists monitoring shorebirds worldwide and pledges new citizen scientists to the world’s largest bird database program.

A week, around World Shorebirds Day (6 September) is dedicated for a worldwide shorebird counting. The counting dates might be great for the birdwatchers in the southern part of the Northern Hemisphere but might be too early for counting migrants in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s impossible to set a date suitable for everyone. However, this program is not solely focusing on migrant shorebird species!
