Just a final reminder about the Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC) for the Carson City area. The count day is this Sunday, December 18th and the "count week" starts this Thursday continuing through this Saturday and again next Monday through Wednesday (3 days before and 3 days after the official count date). Species not observed on the count day but observed during any of those 6 days will be included in the "count week" summary. So if you see any unusual or less common birds during the count week, please e-mail me your observations for potential inclusion in the count summary.
Again, we will meet for the Carson City CBC at 7 AM next Sunday at the Burger King at 3589 N. Carson City in Carson City. We will organize teams and assign areas to survey on that morning. Please e-mail me if you are interested in joining us. Details are outlined in previous posts, on the Audubon CBC web site, and on the Lahontan Audubon web site http://www.nevadaaudubon.org/ . There will be a "tally rally" potluck at my house at the end of the day. Many thanks to those who have committed so far to help next Sunday!
