Dust off your binoculars and clean out your thermos for that delicious hot coffee or Chai tea, because it’s time for the MVAS Las Cruces Christmas Bird Count (CBC)!  This year represents our 40th year of getting up way to early to find and count as many of our feathered friends as possible.

This year’s CBC will be conducted on Saturday, December 20th from sunrise to sunset. A post-CBC get-together will be held at one of our local eateries.  The time and location will be announced later.  Whether you would like to count birds at your feeders, join a team to count birds in the field, or be a team leader, please consider joining us again in the Las Cruces CBC as part of this citizen science effort.  If you’d like to participate, please contact Wayne Treers, compiler and coordinator for this CBC, at way1mike@yahoo.com or call 575-528-8696.

There are additional CBCs in our region:

Caballo CBC, Saturday, December 27, 2014
La Luz CBC, Friday, January 2, 2015

To volunteer for either of these counts, contact John Douglas at jlddouglas@zianet.com or 575-541-0133
