The Missoula Christmas Bird Count (CBC) will be held on Saturday, December 16, 2017. The Count area is a 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 field Count, contact Larry Weeks at 406-549-5632 (406-540-3064 cell) or moc.liamgnull@aenegswb. Larry will provide different options for you to choose from. If you are interested in being a feeder watcher, contact Rose Leach at 406-370-1999 or ten.nanserbnull@2-hcaelr. She will provide you with instructions on how to tabulate your bird sightings.
We also tally 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 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.
