Backyard bird feeders are especially popular and well-attended when the snow is deep.  Birds spend the majority of their waking hours in the search for food.  These photos were taken this week at feeders in my yard in Basalt.

Christmas Bird Count 2013

Dec 8, 2013

Groups of people with binoculars will be counting wild birds next Sunday (12/15/2013.)  It is part of the annual Christmas Bird Count for the National Audubon Society.  This will be the 114th annual count and mark one of the largest and longest running citizen science efforts in the world.  APR’s Roger Adams reports.

  In the Upper Valley the count will take place inside of a defined area. 

“It’s a circle that we’re counting birds within.  Basically it’s a circle drawn on a map.”
