Count Compiler: Ann Douglas . 618-564-2079
Volunteer citizen scientists are needed for this year’s War Bluff Valley Christmas Bird Count. In other words, you’re needed! There is a specific methodology to a CBC, but everyone can participate. If you are a beginning birder you will be able to join a group that includes at least one experienced birdwatcher. In addition, if your home is within the boundaries of a Count Circle, then you can stay home and report the birds that visit your feeder once you have arranged to do so with Ann.
There is a $5 fee to participate in the CBC for all field participants aged 19 or older. No fee for feeder counters.
The WBVS count circle is a 15-mile diameter circle in Pope County with Rising Sun at its center.
