The 2019 Missoula Christmas Bird Count (CBC) will be held on Saturday, December 14, 2019. The Count area is circle with a 7.5 mile radius which is centered at the intersection of Reserve St. and I-90. The area within the circle will be covered by small groups and individuals.
These areas will be assigned ahead of the Count day. You can participate by joining a group in the field or by being a feeder watcher. If you would like to take part in the Count, contact Larry Weeks at 406.549.5632 (406.540.3064 cell) or moc.liamgnull@aenegswb. Larry will provide different field options for you to choose from or instructions on how to tabulate your bird sightings at a feeder. We also tabulate unusual birds not seen on Count day that are seen during Count week. Count week includes the 3 days before and 3 days after Count day.
The Count day will end with a potluck dinner that will be held at the home of Larry Weeks, 2428 West Kent which is near Rosauers. Potluck guests are welcome to arrive at 6:00 pm. Dinner will commence at 6:30 pm. Please bring your favorite potluck offering, or A – L, bring a salad or dessert, and M – Z, a hot dish. After the potluck, we will tabulate the results of the field Count.
