It’s time once again for the Northwest Illinois Audubon Society to participate in the annual Christmas Bird Count. This will be the 44th time that our chapter has taken part in this endeavor to take one-day snapshots of bird diversity and population in predetermined areas.
You are invited to be a part of this year’s count. It will take place on Saturday, December 14. We will meet at the Spring Grove Family Restaurant, 1521 S. West Ave. in Freeport at 6:30 a.m. for a “Dutch-treat” breakfast. After eating, we will assign territories and divide up.
If you are a beginning or novice birder, we will assign you with a more experienced person. Bring a sack lunch and binoculars and dress for the weather.
