Well someone has to start it..might as well be me!
Mark your calendars to join a great team at the 118th Christmas Bird Count on Sunday, December 31, 2017 for OHOS CBC circle. We meet at the Wendy's at Dublin Rd and Glick Rd at 7amET to get your maps, check lists and assignments. Please reply on or before Dec 20 if you plan to help with the count so I can assign teams. We welcome new birders and last year our 68 observers compiled 79 species of birds for the day.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope you can help this year. We meet at 5pm at Iacano's Pizza in Shawnee Hills to turn in data sheets and celebrate our hard work and warm up with food and bird tales/tails.....
Many thanks !!

National Audubon Christmas Bird Count: O'Shaughnessy Circle
The O'Shaughnessy Reservoir Christmas Bird Count is centered at 40.2167 degrees North x -83.2167 degrees West, which is in Union County just northwest of the intersection of Watkins Road (CR 104) and State Road (CR 96). The count circle includes much of the O'Shaughnessy Reservoir, suburban Dublin and some Plain City, eastern Marysville, western Powell, southern Delaware and rural areas. The Columbus Zoo, Glacier Ridge Metro Park, Blues Creek and Emily Traphagen and Ohio Wildlife Center and Twin Lakes are some highlights along the Scioto River corridor.
The O'Shaughnessy Reservoir CBC has been conducted annually since 1955. All Christmas Bird Counts are conducted between December 14 to January 5, inclusive dates, each season.
If you are a beginning birder, you will be able to join a group that includes at least one experienced birdwatcher.
If your home is within the boundaries of a CBC circle, then you can stay at home and report the birds that visit your feeder on count day as long as you have made prior arrangement with the count compiler. Check out the sign-up link above during the sign-up season for information on how to contact the compiler. For more information visit http://www.audubon.org/join-christmas-bird-count
