Gaylord Nelson Audubon Society is pleased to announce the annual Christmas Bird Count. There are eleven Christmas Bird Counts (CBC) that are annually held within the GNAS territory. Christmas Bird Counts are a national tradition where an attempt is made to find, identify and count every bird within a 15 mile diameter circle in one day.
Anyone can participate in a Christmas Bird Count. Novice birders will be assigned to a team to spend a morning, afternoon or all day counting birds. Each team will have an experienced birder as they search their assigned territory within the count circle. You can even participate by counting birds at your feeder if you are within one of the CBC circles.
You can sign up by going to www.christmasbirdcount.org or directly contacting the compiler for the count within which you wish to participate.
For more information contact Robin Maercklein at 715-501-0527 or firstname.lastname@example.org or one of the folks listed below for the count in your area.
