By Chris Cash, CBC Chair
It’s getting to be that time of year of again - Christmas Bird Count (CBC).
This year’s CBC will take place on Monday, December 17 from 7:30am until dark.
As always, we need lots of volunteers to complete our six teams of observers.
We have five field teams going throughout the Village. The field watchers will be notified of their team assignment prior to the actual CBC day - once we know how many field watchers we will have participating. We also have one feeder team comprised of folks who watch their bird feeders from their homes.
Remember - you DO NOT NEED TO BE AN EXPERT BIRDER to participate! You also do not need to stay the whole day if your health or other activities interfere with a full day of bird watching. We need all levels and as many birdwatchers as possible. If spotting birds is difficult, you might be named the Recorder for your team. So please join us, and participate in the 119th CBC.
We will have the CBC dinner on Tuesday, December 18th starting at 5pm at the DeSoto Club. All the previous days bird lists will be compiled at that time. The dinner is always great fun.
The menu will consist of salad, rolls, green beans, rice pilaf, dessert, and your choice of ONE of the followings entrees:
Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Braised Beef Tips or
Grilled Pork Chop with Dried Cherry and Apple Chutney
You can sign up for the dinner and your entree choice on the same sheet as the CBC sign-up.
The cost is $20/person which includes tax and tip.
