Doug, Jim and Nate at Ash Meadows
Red Rock Audubon Christmas Bird Count is BACK SAFELY!!! Volunteer compliers (fancy name for organizing leaders) have redesigned our six count circles (Ash Meadows, Corn Creek, Pahranagat, Henderson, Muddy Rivers and Red Rock Conservation Area) to be COVID appropriate while maximizing volunteer’s birding fun and following the CBC science protocols.
Jim Switalla, Nate Hutt and Doug Chang are continuing a Red Rock Audubon tradition of sweeping the counts (doing all six counts). So far – after 4 counts, the birds have shown up, the weather has been outstanding! Participation of first time and returning CBCers has been outstanding too. Joining in any CBC requires a very early start to the day. However, the cookies made it all worthwhile. Thank you Ash Meadows for the refreshments (hint, hint…other compilers!). Hope our weather luck continues and others will join us and continue this tradition next year.
