Due to unforeseen circumstances, there will be no boat transport for the Portsmouth Island Christmas Bird Count. As a result, the count, scheduled for Dec. 30, is cancelled.
As part of a ripple effect, the Ocracoke Christmas Bird Count will be shifted from Sunday to Saturday, Dec. 30. The weather forecast for Sunday calls for high winds and borderline freezing temperatures.
The traditional vegetarian chili/key lime pie tally rally will take place on early Sunday evening.

The Portsmouth Island Christmas Bird Count, began in 1988 and is one of the most isolated bird counts in the state, requiring a private boat ride from Ocracoke. The Ocracoke count began in 1981.
