Subject: [AZNMbirds] AZ CBC Season Planning and Free AZFO Workshop
>
> Dear AZ Christmas Bird Count Participants,
>
> As many know, it is time again to begin planning for the upcoming
> Christmas Bird Counts (CBC). The first counts are scheduled for 14 Dec., so
> only a month away. If needed, the dates and compiler contacts for the 36
> counts across the state can be found at http://www.azfo.org/CBC/2017_
> 2018.html
>
> In preparation for the CBC season, AZFO has scheduled a free, pre-CBC
> workshops on Saturday morning, *9 December* in Phoenix. The workshop is
> for new, as well as seasoned CBC participants and area leaders. It will
> provide tips and techniques for making your annual CBC experience even
> better. Some topics will include how to find more birds within your
> assigned areas, the importance of scouting, coordinating teams, and how to
> better estimate the number of birds in large flocks. Many of these tips can
> also be used to enhance your general birding skills and make outings more
> enjoyable. For more details please visit
> http://www.azfo.org/events/custom/CBC_workshop.html
>
This workshop is 3-4 hours long, which includes an hour classroom
> presentation and a nearby hike into the field. For workshop location and to
> register, please contact me at <aplomado...> To assist in keeping the
> field part of the workshop from becoming too overwhelming for the leader,
> there is a 25 participant limit.
>
Thank you and I hope to see many of you on a CBC and at the workshop!
