Christmas bird count
DINGMANS FERRY, PA — The Pocono Environmental Education Center at 583 Emery Rd. will help you participate in the National Audubon Society’s 118th annual Christmas Bird Count, the longest running citizen science survey in the world. It takes place on Monday, January 1 starting at 8 a.m.
Here’s a chance for those in our readership area who expressed concern about an apparent absence of birds at their feeders in fall and early winter to help establish accurate data about the status of local bird populations.
You can register for the area around your house and participate from the comfort of your living room, or you can venture out into a different part of the count circle. If you’re a beginner, PEEC will try to pair you with a more experienced birder. Pre-registration is required. For more information visit www.peec.org or call 570/828-2319.
