Christmas Bird Count


       It’s time, it’s time, for the High Peaks Audubon Christmas Bird Count!    The date is Saturday December 16th.

Teams are forming now, so if you’re able to, you can join us either in the field counting with one of the teams; or at home from your feeder(s) if you live within the count circle.  The CBC is an all day event. However, if you can only commit to a half day, you're still welcome to join us.  Please contact Russ ASAP at 828/682-4199.

       The areas within the circle are Celo, Double Island, Jack’s Creek and downtown Burnsville, Price’s Creek, Pensacola, and Burnsville Elementary School.  If you have a preference of what part of the circle you’d like to count, let Russ know when you contact him.  We’ll do our best to place you there.

       If it’s your first time participating in the CBC know that all skill levels and ages are welcome and we’ll match you up so you’ll have fun, learn and share skills.  Bring your binoculars, water, snack/lunch and if you’re handy with a camera you might bring it too. Dress for the weather, we count rain or shine.
