Pinedale Audubon Christmas Bird Count Dec. 18
December 15, 2005
Wyoming’s chapters of the National Audubon Society will be holding their annual Christmas Bird Counts from December 14-January 5, 2006. All told, there will be 20 counts this year involving eight communities, including one in Pinedale.
The Christmas Bird Count is in its 106th year and has more than 50,000 participants across the nation. The data is used to help increase the knowledge of bird species in a given area and to help manage sensitive bird species. Bird count and species information is turned into Cornell University for data compilation.
Wyoming has six Audubon chapters, and newcomers are always welcome. Counters need warm clothing for a day outdoors, binoculars or a spotting scope, a birding field guide, good walking shoes or boots, and a camera.
The Pinedale Rendezvous Valley chapter will hold their count on Sunday, December 18th. Meet at the Sublette County Library in Pinedale at 7:30 am. Contacts are Steve Smith: (307) 367-4629 and firstname.lastname@example.org; or Alison King at (307) 367-2162 and email@example.com.
