Christmas Bird Count - 2016  December 18, Sunday

The Juneau Christmas Bird Count will be held this year on Sunday, December 18, 2016, the first weekend of the designated count period of December 14 through January 5.  This marks the 117th year of the CBC, with counts planned across the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America.  This will be our 44th count in Juneau.  Again, please take note, our count is on Sunday, December 18.

Here in Juneau our count week will begin on December 15, and go through December 21.  We will have our usual two meeting places to stage on the morning of count day.  Volunteers should arrive at 8a.m., bring your binocular and be prepared for the weather and walking conditions.  People wanting to count in the downtown, Douglas, and north Douglas Island areas should meet at the downtown Foodland IGA grocery coffee bar.  Birders wishing to work the Lemon Creek, airport, Mendenhall Valley and Auke Bay areas should meet at the McDonald’s restaurant on Trout Street opposite the Valley Breeze In.  Hopefully, we will have our area leaders arranged ahead of time, but we will allocate leaders and birders to the different groups at our staging locations on count day as needed.  We encourage participation from all levels of birders; the more eyes the better.  However, this is not a day oriented toward teaching beginning birders how to identify birds, as there is simply not enough time in the day for that.   

 There will be a potluck after the count at the home of Mark Schwan and Debi Ballam.  This is always a nice event and highlight of the day, as we share stories, eat some good food, and hold back on the good bird sightings until we conduct the tally of birds and species later in the evening.  For those needing directions to Mark and Debi’s house, this information will be provided on the morning of the count.  Mark and Debi’s house is smoke free and pet free.  Let’s have a good turnout and a terrific count!  For more information or if you have any questions, call Mark at 209-7401.
