Greetings everybody. This year’s Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is scheduled for Saturday, December 18th. Again this year we will be not be getting together as a group. Last years, Covid-19 influenced, CBC plan went very well (Thank you Matt Hunter) and we will be proceeding with the same arrangements. All communications will be via email, phone call, etc. Individuals, families, and small groups of friends will be assigned to cover particular areas. If you haven’t participated in the past and would like to this year, you are strongly encouraged to contact me and see what we can arrange. You can even participate by counting in your own yard or neighborhood if in the CBC circle.

To view our CBC circle, the breakdown of assigned areas and other information, go to www.umpquabirds.org/cbc. I will be this year’s contact person. Jeannie Pollock will again be our compiler. You can contact me, Mark Hamm, 541 580-3081 or mark@hammdentistry.com.
