Christmas Bird Count 2017 (CBC) Overview

Once again it is time to organize the annual Christmas Bird Count. This event gives all of us the opportunity to share birding with others.

If you are a novice, it provides a wonderful opportunity to learn from the more experienced birders. This citizen science program is in its 118th year and provides data used to understand and develop bird conservation programs. Beginners provide extra eyes and experienced birders provide accuracy. If you are joining the group, come prepared for weather and an extended tour: rain gear, field glasses, water, and lunch.

This is your chance to help collect the information which will direct decisions in future, decisions which will affect how much natural beauty, including birds,  remains for future generations. To sign up see the contact info below:
