The annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count will be all day Sunday.
Those counting will meet at 7:30 a.m. at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot, 345 Boyer Ave. There, experienced and novice birders and other volunteers will be grouped and assigned routes to cover. Participants should bring binoculars if possible, dress for hiking and prepare a lunch. At the end of the count, an evening supper and wrap-up of the survey will follow.
This is the 111th annual national Christmas Bird Count. This famous wildlife census provides valuable national data on bird populations and guides conservation efforts. Veteran and novice birders are welcome. Call MerryLynn Denny at 529-0080 to sign up to participate.
