Join the Migratory Bird Twitter Chat!


Have you ever participated in a Twitter Chat? It’s a way for people to come together to share experiences and knowledge around a particular topic.

I’m excited to be hosting a Migratory Bird Twitter Chat tomorrow (September 29) at 7 pm Eastern/4 pm Pacific as part of the Migratory Bird Treaty Centennial, which we celebrate this year. If you are active on Twitter, please join us virtually tomorrow afternoon/evening!

The Nitty Gritty: What You Need To Know

  1. I will moderate the chat from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Southwest Twitter account (@USFWSSouthwest)
  2. The whole chat will last approximately an hour.
  3. We’ll tweet a new question about every five minutes. Please retweet and answer to share your own thoughts and experiences. The more the merrier, so help spread the word!
  4. Use the hashtag #BirdYear when responding so you can connect with other participants.
  5. Special guest (and ABA Board Member) Kenn Kaufman will be participating and answering your questions at several points throughout the chat. Is there something you have always wanted to ask Kenn? Tweet it to @KennKaufman in 140 characters or less, and don’t forget to use the #BirdYear hashtag so we are sure to see your questions.
  6. The chat is being hosted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Southwest, the Sonoran Joint Venture, the ABA, and Black Swamp Bird Observatory.
  7. If you’re new to Twitter Chats, here is a great link with some tips and instructions for how to participate.
