CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT
The Christmas Bird Count tradition is over 100 years old. Over a three week period between
Dec 14 – Jan 5, birdwatchers will submit their findings to the National Audubon Society.
The data collected helps scientists understand the bird populations across North America
during early winter. It is a lot of fun to know that you are contributing to the knowledge base
while having fun birdwatching with others. Some of the places where the counts will occur
include - Joshua Tree, Big Morongo, Idyllwild area Anza-Borrego, Salton Sea
Check for groups you can join at http://www.sbvas.org/ Events will be posted in November.
