WALLA WALLA CHRISTMAS COUNT
Saturday, December 14, 2013
It's time again to grab your binoculars, put on your warm clothes, pack a lunch and join Mike and MerryLynn Denny for the Walla Walla Christmas Bird Count. We will meet at Harper Joy Theatre parking lot where MerryLynn will assign teams for the day's count. In the past we have encountered fog, snow, rain, wind and more-all for fun and a little team competition in the name of bird conservation. Inexperienced birders will be paired with those with higher identification skills so everyone can enjoy the event. The more people who turn out, the more eyes there will be to see what wintering birds are in the 15 mile Walla Walla count circle.
But the fun doesn't end with the count. We will reconvene after a day in the field at the Shoemake's home for a warm bowl of soup and desserts. After supper we will have a wrap-up of the day's events with each team going over their list of birds. The data will be compiled by MerryLynn and posted on the Blue Mountain Audubon website.
It's important to let MerryLynn know ahead of time if you want to participate so she can make up the teams. Contact her by email at email@example.com or call 529-0080
