MEDFORD CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT
Dec 16 all-day
MEDFORD CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT

Rogue Valley Audubon proudly coordinates two Audubon Christmas Bird Counts.

MEDFORD CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT

The area for the Medford count is a circle 15 miles in diameter, centered approximately a mile west of the junction of Highway 140 and Highway 62 in White City. The circle is divided into 15 sections with teams of birders, each with an experienced leader, counting birds in each section.

All birders are welcome to participate, and newcomers will be assigned to a group by the Medford count coordinator.

Those who live in the count circle and have bird feeders can do a feeder watch and add their sightings to the count.  CBC feeder watch instructions and a tally sheet can be obtained by contacting Bob Hunter  (contact information below).

Medford CBC Coordinator:  Bob Hunter, 541-826-5569, or email at link under “read more”.
