Pinedale's Christmas Bird Count January 3
December 27, 2020
The 121st annual Christmas Bird Count is taking place throughout the country. Here in Pinedale our count day will be Sunday, January 3. We have Covid restrictions this year and are asking for folks to stay within their family group, social distance, and wear masks as necessary.
The object of the day is to count every bird that can be identified within a 7.5 mile radius of the Pinedale Library. At the end of the day all of the lists are gathered, compiled, and added together. This information is then sent to the national data base. Pinedale has had a count circle since 2004 with an average of 40 species and approximately 1400 birds annually. Last year was our best with almost 5000 birds seen consisting of 39 species! We welcome all participants, beginning and serious birders who would like to venture out or even watch their bird feeder for the day.
There will be no Chili Pot Luck at the library due to Covid restrictions, but we are giving prizes for the most birds counted, most species counted, and the most (verifiable) unique bird.
If you would like to join us by taking a route, watching your bird feeder, or need more information, give Betty Boehm a call at 307-367-7018 or send an email to email@example.com.
