Hello, Bay Area Birders. Passing this on from our good friends at Golden Gate Audubon Society. (Eddie Bartley, San Francisco)
This is Golden Gate Audubon Society's CENTENNIAL YEAR . and we invite you to help celebrate its first century at the big year-end citizen science event: the annual San Francisco Christmas Bird Count, on Wednesday, December 27. The San Francisco Count is held in partnership with the Presidio Trust. Please join us.
As a field observer, you'll get to see and hear the bird life in an area that fits your interests and abilities, add to our understanding of the status and distribution of our wintering birds, and enjoy the day. We welcome new birders to help documenting the birds that are being identified by more experienced leaders. Afterward, join us at the compilation dinner ($20) at the Log Cabin in the Presidio. A rarity usually turns up; learning about them will help you see them, too. The food from La Mediterranee will be good, and the company will be even better.
Maybe you'd rather just count birds in your yard on December 27. Feeder watchers can spend as much or as little time watching birds as they wish, and these observations also advance our knowledge of winter bird populations. If this interests you, sign up as a feeder watcher -- in the evening you can also join us at the compilation dinner.
