DEC

Sunday, December 17, all day ~ Audubon Society of Lincoln City (ASLC) is sponsoring our 5th Christmas Bird Count (CBC). The circle for counting birds consists of six areas which include estuaries, bay, freshwater lake, ocean, and coast range forest. We meet for breakfast at 6:30am at our local Pig 'n Pancake. We hope you will join us. We're looking for volunteers to come out and count with us (see Field Counters, below) or to count the birds in their back yards if they reside within the Count Circle (see info on Backyard/Feeder Counters, below).
FIELD COUNTERS
Meet at the Pig 'n Pancake at 6:30am for breakfast and instructions (7am if you're not planning to eat). We will be organizing teams ahead of time by email so be sure to pre-register. Be prepared for a winter day outdoors on the Oregon coast—warm clothes, rainwear, and waterproof footwear. Bring a bag lunch and snacks. At the end of the day, around 4pm, we'll meet at the Connie Hansen Gardens for some hot food and tall tales!
BACKYARD/FEEDER COUNTERS
We really need as many backyard/feeder counters as possible. If you live within the Count Circle (see circle info) and prefer to stay at home, this job's for you. You can count for only a few minutes or all day long.
More information will be provided to registrants prior to count day. Click here to view the Count Circle map.
