Our next meeting will be Monday, December 15th, at the Caspar Community Center, 7PM.

It's time for the annual Christmas Bird Count meeting. Tim Bray (Fort Bragg Circle) and David Jensen (Manchester Circle) will talk about what's involved in a Christmas Bird Count and show examples of birds we can expect to encounter during our local counts. This is a great opportunity to learn about what this is all about and find a team to participate with. If sitting inside where it's warm is more your style, we'll also talk about the feeder/backyard bird count.
