Pre-Christmas Bird Count
Saturday, December 9 – 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
Join Mike Denny on a Pre-Christmas Bird Count (CBC) a week before the all-day
CBC on December 16. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn more
about how and where the count is conducted; and see some of the birds we
hope to find on the CBC. We will scope out several of the 12 areas within the
15-mile-diameter count circle that is centered at Bennington lake.
One of the goals of this field trip is to encourage greater participation in the
December 16th CBC, especially for those that have never participated and for
those that consider themselves “beginning birders”.
We will meet at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot on the Whitman College
campus and carpool. Bring your binoculars and a friend or two. You do not
have to be a member of Blue Mountain Audubon to attend and all ages are
welcome. If you have any questions, contact Mike at: email@example.com or
