The Audubon Christmas Bird Count is an annual tradition that started back in the year 1900. 117 years later, the information collected by birders is providing invaluable data to better understand the ebb and flow of bird populations in North America. Please join our group of bird watchers as we do our part for this annual event. Experienced and inexperienced birders are welcome! The group will walk the trails around Brookside Nature Center to count and identify winter birds, starting early Saturday morning, at 8:30 am. Depending on the weather and number of volunteers, we will scout until 11:30. It is not madatory that volunteers stay the entire time, but the more sharp-eyed scouts, the better! The results of the count will be tallied with those collected from all over the county and sent to the Cornell Ornithology Lab. Volunteers will be contacted with more details after they sign up.
