The 44TH annual Walla Walla Christmas Bird Count will be Saturday, December 16. Meet at Harper Joy Theater parking lot at 7:30 a.m. for orientation. All eyes are needed! Our CBC circle is centered at Bennington Lake and is 15 miles across. It is broken up into 12 areas – some areas require a lot of walking – others can be birded from the car. If you cannot come out for the day you can still contribute by counting birds at your feeder (if you live within 7.5 miles of Bennington Lake).
All bird species AND numbers are counted. There will be a wrap-up get together at 5:30 p.m. at Fort Walla Walla Museum off Myra Rd. Hot soup, bread and drink provided. You do NOT have to come on the count to join in the wrap-up – and you are welcome to bring your favorite salad and/or dessert. Please contact MerryLynn Denny firstname.lastname@example.org or 529-0080 if you plan on participating so she can assign folks to areas and organize the count. If you cannot come to the wrap-up please send your bird count to MerryLynn. Thank you very much!
