Eastern Sierra Audubon Event38th Annual Bishop Christmas Bird Count

Eastern Sierra Audubon sponsors the Bishop Christmas Bird Count. The 38th annual Bishop Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is Saturday, December 14th, 2019.  All skill levels are invited to participate.  The CBC is an important citizen-science effort to census all birds in the Bishop area. Results show long term population trends and shifting demographics. Plus, it’s a lot of fun!

Please RSVP as soon as possible to Chris Howard at chris93514@gmail.com, (760) 873-7422 (home), or (760) 920-2845 (cell), to join a team and let him know if you prefer a specific area or team-mate. He’d like to assign areas well in advance to give you a chance to scout.  If you’d prefer to be a feeder-watcher, as opposed to covering an area, please let him know.
