2015-16 Winter Bird List for Northumberland County and local Christmas Bird Counts

I know Dave has distributed this email to quite a few people but there may be someone on our club list that isn’t in Dave’s list. Sorry for duplication. Peter

Hi All:

As in previous years, everyone is invited to contribute to the 2015-16 Winter Bird List for Northumberland County. It begins on Tuesday, Dec. 1, and extends through to Monday, Feb. 29.

Last year we set a new record of 68 species. See attached list. Hopefully we can do even better this time, with the first few days being critical while some migrant stragglers are still around. Perhaps that Yellow-throated Warbler will reappear at Peter and Deana’s, the Northern Cardinal will still be at Walter and Chris’s, Jim will be able to relocate the Black-backed Woodpecker in Redmondville, and the Common Grackle and Rusty Blackbird will still be hanging around my feeder. As before, I’d appreciate receiving any lists of your observations for the first day or two from individual feeders or from anywhere in the county for those who travel, at my email address: mcleodda

I’d also like to announce the dates for our three local upcoming Christmas Bird Counts (CBC’s) that were recently decided by Pam and myself.

Red Bank / Sunny Corner CBC – Saturday, Dec. 19, 2015. Meet at the Irving in Sunny Corner at 8:30 AM.

Miramichi CBC – Sunday, Dec. 20, 2015. Meet at Tim Hortons, Douglastown, at 8:00 AM.

New Jersey / Neguac CBC – Saturday, Jan. 2, 2016. Meet at Tim Hortons, Neguac, at 8:30 AM.

All are welcome to participate regardless of your bird identification skills, as you can join a party with more experienced birders. Or you can keep a list of the species and number of each visiting your feeder that day and send me the results. A reminder will be sent closer to the actual dates.

Dave
