ASHLAND CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT – Dec. 28, 2019
The Ashland CBC will take place on Saturday, December 28. The count circle is centered at the northwest corner of Emigrant Lake, so the count area includes both the northeastern slopes of Mount Ashland and the western slopes of the Cascades (as far east as Little Hyatt Lake). Also in the official area are the steep Siskiyou Mountain woodlands, extensive farmland, grassland, oak savannah habitats in the eastern section, and the entirety of the city of Ashland with its parks, gardens and riparian habitats.
Birders who wish to count birds that visit their backyard feeders are also encouraged to join the Ashland CBC lineup. CBC feeder watch instructions and a tally sheet can be obtained by contacting Carol Mockridge (contact information below). Newcomers are always welcome to participate in this traditional citizen science effort.
The teams will meet from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm to report how the day went and to tally the birds. The meeting will be at El Tapatio Restaurant, 1633 Highway 99 in Ashland. Everyone is welcome to come to the tally even if you do not participate.
The Ashland CBC is coordinated by Carol Mockridge and Emmalisa Whalley. To join a counting group or for more information, contact Carol Mockridge at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-829-7505 by December 21.
