Our second Bluebird Blitz of the year will see our volunteer community scientists get assigned an area to record Bluebird sightings and go out looking for one of the Preservation Trust's favorite birds!


Become an independent community scientist during our second Bluebird Blitz of the year, led by SJPT’s Conservation Project Manager, Kathleen Foley Lewis.

After registering, we will email you further details, but all participants should plan to meet at Red Mill Farm Preserve, at 7:30am on April 5th. After meeting with other volunteers, everyone will receive a San Juan Island territory, that combined with other volunteers, provides coverage across San Juan Island. Once assigned, we will head out and count as many Western Bluebirds (WEBLs) as we can. If you’re not familiar with identifying WEBLs—no worries, we will pair you with someone who is.

The blitz will not last more than 2 hours, total. Binoculars and transportation are necessary. Further details will be e-mailed to you prior to the event.

  • Date: Wednesday, 4/5/2023 (weather dependent)
  • Time: 7:30am–9:30am
  • Location: Various locations around San Juan Island. Meet at Red Mill Farm first.
  • Bring: Binoculars and your own transportation method
  • Leader: SJPT Special Projects Director Kathleen Lewis
