Christmas Bird Count
Join us for the 115th Audubon Christmas Bird Count on Sunday, December 14, 2014. Novices, experts and kids are all welcome. All you need is a bird identification book and binoculars, and appropriate clothing in the event of wet weather. We are not deterred by rain or light snow flurries … dress accordingly! This annual bird count is an American tradition dating to 1900, and the 38th year along the lower Buffalo River. The data is compiled for scientific analysis.
