It’s Beginning to The Gift of Helping Birds this Holiday Season - Christmas Bird Count Participation
No matter what mode of transportation, it is great to get as much of our Count Circle covered as possible and tally the number of species present. Everyone’s participation will be appreciated; from tallying numbers at feeders, to birding through whatever weather comes that day.
As this is being written, leaves, rather than snow, are falling. Before long we will be in the midst of Christmas Bird Count season with the Lakewood (west side) Christmas Bird Count, sponsored by Western Cuyahoga Audubon, taking place on Saturday, December 30, 2017.
"Lakewood" count circle includes western areas of Cuyahoga County, from Lake Erie south into Berea and Olmsted Falls, and Lakewood and Cleveland Zoo too.
Recorded at Spice Kitchen + Bar, Gordon Arts District, 5800 Detroit Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. Visit the Flickr Photo Album.
Five Great Black-backed Gulls and two Lesser Black-backed Gulls made nice additions to this year's list.
Every tally counts toward conservation. - Gary Langham, Ph.D., Vice President and Chief Scientist, National Audubon Society
The Feathered Flyer blog publishes human interest stories about birding and habitat conservation.
After watching, ‘My Painted Trillium Quest' by Tom Fishburn, Kim Langley, WCAS Member said, “Wonderful! It was a lift just knowing that such a site exists and is being protected!”
