Rochester Christmas Bird Count – Sunday, December 16th, 2018
December 16, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 5:00 pm$5.00
Enjoy the company of other birders! Participate in citizen science!
Join us for the 119th Christmas Bird Count of the National Audubon Society and the 115th Rochester CBC. New observers will be paired with experienced birders. If you cannot get out to bird in the field, watch your feeder and phone results to the area leader.
In the evening of the count day, we will gather at Newport Yacht Club (on Seneca Road in Irondequoit) at 6:00 p.m. for pizza (there will be a $5 charge to cover costs) and pot-luck followed by a species tally. Hot cocoa and cider will flow!
The tally will start about 7:30PM. We will be finished by 9:00 p.m. Come to the tally even if you don’t come to dinner. Please reply to Norma Platt at 585-260-5221 by December 13.
Birds seen during the count week, December 13 to 19, may be called in to the area leaders.
