The 61st Calgary Christmas Bird Count will be held on Sunday December 16, 2012. Phil Cram is organizing it, and as usual he’d like to get as many birders involved as possible. The goal is to have over 100 people in the field that day, and over 100 watching their feeders. If you want to participate in the field, contact Phil by email at crampj(at)gmail.com. If you’d like to take part in the Feederwatch program, email Jean Moore at jmmoore(at)ucalgary.ca or phone (403) 282-4162.
Note that Bird Studies Canada is no longer charging a $5 fee to participate in the field, as they did in the past.
