Hello birders,
If it’s fall then it’s time to consider our upcoming Christmas Bird Count, which will occur on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2016. Bird all or part of the day and then go out to honk in the New Year (unless we are still needing some night birds!).

And yes, we have started our course of meetings to organize this wonderful event. Check for new blog posts for more updated information.

IMPORTANT, we will have a catered dinner at the countdown dinner. This is optional, you are free to bring your own food instead. Here are some details:

Enjoy a catered dinner and warm camaraderie, and bring in the new year following this year’s Christmas Bird Count on New Year’s Eve. BBQ chicken breast or vegetable frittata are accompanied by vegetarian baked beans, “loaded” green salad, salsa, toasted garlic bread, yogurt and a home made chocolate chip cookie. Catered by Jill’s restaurant, the meal promises to be delicious. Bring your own drink of choice. Join us for this special dinner. [Also please consider bringing your own service set to cut down on waste].

Be sure to sign up by Christmas, 12/25/16, cut-off day. The link is: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/christmas-bird-count-dinner-tickets-29241532210

Good birding,
