I am very fortunate to live and work in an area that is an Ornithologist’s (fancy word for bird watcher) Heaven. Every Spring and Autumn produces a migration of birds from all over and they visit the park as a stop over when heading North or South depending on the time of the year. However, many fail to realize that the dead of Winter can produce great sightings of birds here at the park as well.

Join us on Saturday, December 21st for our annual National Audubon Society Christmas Bird Count. It is a service we provide to the Audubon Society as a way to help them monitor bird migrations and populations. Things will kick off at the park’s Visitor Center at 8 o’clock where we will review the map and decide on locations to bird. We will bird all day and wrap up around 8 o’clock PM where we will join for a chili dinner (provided the park) and will compile our information of the number and species of birds counted from the day. Don’t consider yourself an expert at bird identification? There will be some of the best birders in the area will be there, and are more than happy to pair up with you beginners to help make your birding adventure an enjoyable and educational one.

For additional information, feel free to contact me by emailing me HERE or by calling my office at (276) 865- 4413 ext. 3213.

We hope to see you there!
