It's Christmas Bird Count time

Mon, 12/10/2012 - 8:59am

A wonderful tradition will continue this December with the 
2012 Audubon
Christmas Bird Count (CBC).  The count will be held Saturday, December 
15 for the Grand Marais “counting circle.”
The counting circle is a 7.5-mile radius circle from a point three 
miles south of the middle of Devil Track Lake.  The count circle 
covers Highway 61 to Lindskog Road and north, some of County Road 60, 
the Gunflint Trail to the landfill road, Pine Mountain Road to the 
backside of Elbow Lake, Devil Track Road to Bally Creek Road, Ball 
Club Road to The Grade, Pike Lake Road, and Highway 61 west to Cascade 
Lodge, and all of the lakeshore between Lindskog Road and Cascade Lodge.
Christmas Bird Count Compiler Jeremy Ridlbauer said both feeder 
watchers and walking/driving birders are needed for the count. 
Participants will need to identify birds and count the highest number 
of a single species in an area.
Ridlbauer said, “You can cover as much or as little as you'd like.  
You can be a novice to a professional, since CBCs are open to birders 
of all skill levels.”
If you would like to take part, contact Jeremy Ridlbauer @ sundew@boreal.org
  or (218) 370-0733 to notify us about what area you can cover or what 
feeder or area you'll be watching.
