Area Bird Watches Prepare For Xmas

Inland Northwest birders are among thousands in roughly 2,000 localities across North America and beyond who will be flocking together in the next few weeks for the 112th annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count. New birders are invited to join avid birdwatchers on more than a dozen counts that are being organized within 100 miles of Spokane. Each volunteer group will count for one day between Dec. 14 and Jan. 5 in a designated circle 15 miles in diameter. Area Audubon groups offer 10 counts on four days during that period. Some birders join in more than one. The count began on Christmas 1900 in 25 eastern localities where groups publicized the pleasure of identifying, counting and recording all the birds they saw/Rich Landers, SR. More here.
