     Audubon's 118th Christmas Bird Count will be conducted this coming season, with the Lubbock CBCs on December 16th, 17th and 30th.


     The “CBC” was first undertaken by 27 people in 1900, and is important in several respects: it monitors “the status and distribution of bird populations across the Western Hemisphere,” and combined with other studies, gives scientists and ornithologists an idea of which species spend their time where, and which species might be on the decline over time. Presently over 50,000 individuals participate in this bird count survey, called “the oldest and largest wildlife survey in the world.”

     If you’re a beginner, you’ll be paired with an experienced birder, and it’s a great learning experience for newcomers. Call Anthony Hewetson to sign up or ask questions. [email protected] or by phone at 806 252-1213.   Who knows what  songbirds, hawks owls, falcons, or even an eagle or two you might see during this fun annual event!
