Some of the Bird Count Dates for our region have passed, but several counts still need volunteers to watch their feeders~~It's fun and if you would like to do it to, here are the dates for Southwest Ohio, Southern Indiana, and Northern Kentucky: http://cincinnatibirds.com/events.php
The Cincinnati Region Count is Sunday, December 28 in the morning hours.
The Birding Society organizers welcome new interested bird counters. There is a minimal fee for some of the counts ($5 for the counts for the Audubon Society census). Just call or e-mail the organizers and let them know you are interested. Many of them then take your data by e-mail at the end of the day, or you can join them for a fun gathering to share your results with others.
A nice way to get involved in the community and do a 'good thing' during the holiday season!
