Bridgerland Audubon Society held its 58th Christmas Bird Count on Saturday, December 14, 2013. Preliminary tallies are in. Thanks to 38 observers we found 98 species and more than 27,000 individual birds, including the Rusty Blackbird found by Craig Fosdick and relocated today by six of us. See Bryan Dixon’s BridgerlandAudubon Facebook post.

Invitation

Everyone is also invited to the potluck dinner afterward at the Cache Valley Unitarian Universalists building (596 East 900 North, Logan) to tally the results, beginning at 6:00 p.m. that evening. (BYOB and a dish to share. We’ll supply a cold cut sandwich.)

Join 60 plus other folks–some great birders, some just enjoying a winter’s day watching wildlife–as we add to the most extensive database of citizen science in the world. Data from the CBC is used for a wide variety of research, including substantiating the effects of global weirding. But most of us do it because it’s fun to be out with friends, old and new, observing nature and marveling at how such tiny creatures survive quite handily in sub-freezing weather.

To participate, please contact the compiler, Bryan Dixon, at bdixon@xmission.com or 435- 752-6830, so he can put you with the team that needs you the most. The traditional $5 fee for the CBC has been waived by National Audubon Society, but you’re free to make a donation to offset some of the costs we incur locally by sending a check (or gold) to: Bridgerland Audubon Society POB 3501 Logan, UT 84323-3501 or by credit card at: http://www.bridgerlandaudubon.org/donate.htm

For a report on this and last year’s count, visit: http://bridgerlandaudubon.org/our-projects/cache-valley-christmas-bird-count/m

See you on the Count!

November 16, Annual Seed Sale

Bridgerland Audubon Society’s annual sale of black oil sunflower seed will take place the morning of Saturday, November 16, from 9-11AM at the entrance to the landfill off of Valley View Highway (UT30).  Price is $25 per 50 lb bag, payable by check or cash.  We will not be offering home delivery this year.

As a trial, we will also be selling white millet seed for $0.60/pound.  You will need to bring your own container, as we will be selling by the scoop out of 50 lb sacks.

This is a major fundraiser for Bridgerland Audubon, but you will find the prices very competitive.
