Place of YOUR choosing on Tuesday, January 1st
This has gotten to be a tradition for our club, so we are putting this in our December
newsletter to give you a heads up. Start your 2019 out right by making a New
Year’s Day Bird List at the place of your choosing. This is not a group field trip nor
is it a competition, just a great way to start the
year out. If you haven’t participated before, maybe
this will be the start of a new tradition for you!
Make a note of all bird species seen and/or heard
beginning midnight of New
Year’s Eve (which would officially be January 1st)
and ending 11:59PM of January 1st. You may bird
anywhere you would like (Costa Rica?). Email your
resulting bird list with the location to . Highlights from your
lists will go in the February newsletter.
