Christmas Bird Count & Year-End Party

  • Town Hall Hancock, NH (map)

Be a part of one of the oldest bird census projects in the country! For over a hundred years, citizen scientists have been helping to monitor bird populations by recording every winged thing they see on a particular day in mid-December. (Click here  to read more about the Christmas Bird Count here in New Hampshire.) The Harriers will take a section in the Peterborough CBC on Saturday, December 14th, beginning at 8:00 at the Town Hall in Hancock. We'll adjourn about 2:00 for some hot cocoa, food, and a year-end celebration of the Young Birders Club. We'll elect our officers for 2014 and take care of other Club business. We'll also get to meet The General, a 12-year-old Red-tailed Hawk, and watch him in flight. If you can't come all day, join us for these festivities, beginning at 2:00 at the Harris Center. Put the event on your calendar today, and let us know you'll be coming!
