Christmas Bird Count, Dec. 19 and Jan. 2

York County Audubon sponsors two Christmas bird counts to help monitor the health and status of bird populations throughout North America. They began with the National Audubon Society count on Christmas Day in 1900. More than 2,300 areas are covered each year, with more than 70,000 birders participating from Alaska to South America. At the end of the day, counters meet to compile the counts and share highlights. Once compiled, the counts are forwarded to National Audubon for their master compilation. This season, counts will be held Dec. 19 in Wells (email pmmoynahan@maine.rr.com or call 284-5487), and Jan. 2 in Biddeford and Kennebunk (call 967-4102 or email kadona11@roadrunner.com).
