2015 Annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC)

Locate your trusted binoculars and favorite field guide because it’s time for the Las Cruces Christmas Bird Count (CBC)!  This year’s CBC will be conducted on Saturday, December 19th from sunrise to sunset.  This year represents our 41st year of observing and recording valuable early winter bird species data in the Mesilla Valley.  We will have a pre-CBC meeting at our regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, December 16th at 7:00 PM at the SW Environmental Center.  At this meeting, we will prepare for this year’s CBC, discuss logistics, and organize our teams.  A post-CBC get together will be held at one of our local eateries.  The time and location will be announced later.  You can help this citizen scientist effort in a number of ways:  count birds at your feeder(s); join a team to locate, ID, count, and/or record birds; or be a team leader.  Please consider joining us again in the Las Cruces CBC.  If interested, contact Wayne Treers, compiler and coordinator for this CBC, at way1mike@yahoo.com or call 575-528-8696.  Thank you in advance for your participation.
