Las Cruces Christmas Bird Count Dec. 16, 2017

Our Las Cruces Christmas Bird Count (CBC) will be held on Saturday, December 16, 2017, from sunrise to sunset.  Mesilla Valley Audubon Society (MVAS) has sponsored this CBC for 43 years.  Our CBC circle encompasses a varied habitat for birds – from a riparian corridor to agricultural fields to suburban areas to desert scrubland.  This diversity often has yielded more than 130 species sighted during the CBC.

MVAS will hold a pre-CBC meeting on Wednesday, December 13 at 7:00PM at the Southwest Environmental Center (SWEC), 275 North Main Street on the Downtown Mall.  The meeting provides an opportunity for team members to discuss final arrangements for the count day.

We have 13 teams of birders that cover the Las Cruces CBC circle.  Please consider joining us in locating and counting birds on December 16 and make a big contribution to citizen science.  If you are new to the CBC, we will find a team that you can bird with.  If interested, please contact Wayne Treers (coordinator and compiler for the Las Cruces CBC) at way1mike@yahoo.com or 575-528-8696.
