We are pleased to announce the 2nd annual Utah Birders Park City Christmas Bird Count and invite you to participate! The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is a census of birds performed annually in December and January by volunteer birders. The purpose is to provide population data for use in science, especially conservation biology--though many people participate just for fun.
The 2012 Park City CBC will take place on Saturday, December 22, 2012 starting at 8am and going until 6pm (or until there are not more birds to be seen). We will split up into several teams to cover areas from Jordanelle north to Jeremy Ranch and from Summit Park east to Rockport and Peoa.
We will announce a meeting location prior to the event, but it has not been determined at this time.
For the CBC we will split into smaller groups of 2-4 birders. Each team will be led by a member of the Utah Birders that will help identify the species encountered and share some information about the birds along the way. For those interested we will meet at 6:00pm after at a location TBD to compile all the checklists and share stories from the day.
THERE IS NO COST TO PARTICIPATE in this years CBC. National Audubon Society has done away with their fees, and we will not be collection money as a fundraiser this year.
If you have any questions feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Carl at 801-688-5017, Jeff at 801-842-4013, or Tim at 801-440-3035.
We hope to see you on the 2nd annual Park City CBC!
