Compiler - La Crosse Area Christmas Bird Count
The La Crosse/La Crescent Christmas Bird Count is coming up on Saturday, Dec. 16, and I would love to have your help!
As someone who has participated in the past or is a member of the Coulee Region Audubon Society community, I could especially use your help as a feeder counter. If you live in the count circle and are actively feeding birds at your home, I would love to have you count the birds in your yard on that day so that we could include your birds in our count totals.
Feeder counters must live in the count circle to participate. The following web page includes a map of our circle that you can look at to determine if you live in the count circle.
For those who have participated in the past, thanks again for your help and I hope that I can count on you again this year.
For people who haven’t participated, I hope that you will give it a try!!
Please let me know whether or not you would be willing to participate this year. My work schedule is hectic so a response in the next few days would be a big help. If you are unsure of your availability, please let me know that, too, so that I can reach out again closer to the event.
I hope that you have a great Thanksgiving and holiday season and hope that I can count on your help!!
We will hold a potluck on Saturday evening – location and time to be announced. All participants in the count are welcome to attend with a guest.
