Saturday Dec. 28, 2019 All or part day: Audubon Christmas Bird Count.
The Nashaway Chapter will be participating in the 119th annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC). We will be counting birds by night and day then tallying our sightings over dinner at 5pm in Hollis ($5 donation for dinner). If you are familiar with bird identification and would like to participate, either as a feeder counter or in the field, contact Richard Bielawski. Groups will be assigned specific areas within our 15 mile diameter count circle centered near the Nashua Hollis border, then working those areas on their own.
