Calling all birders for the 2016 Christmas Bird Count! All levels of birders welcome! For the Oceanside CBC (which includes the Buena Vista Lagoon, Whelan Lake, Anstine Nature Preserve, Oceanside Harbor, among other locations), please contact organizer Jane Mygatt: firstname.lastname@example.org who will assign you to a group leader who will fill you in on when and where to meet. Please include your name, phone number, and a sentence or two indicating your general level of birding experience. Please let Jane know by December 10 if possible.
All levels are welcome, but if you are new to bird-watching, join the CBC at the Buena Vista Lagoon location: for this, we meet at the Nature Center parking lot at 9:00 AM. (This is the regular Basic Birding Workshop and Bird Count, but is being held during the Christmas Bird Count, rather than on the last Saturday of the month).
And after a good morning’s birding, around noon, tired but happy birders will congregate at the BV Nature Center to go over surveying sheets and enjoy Annette Schneider’s homemade chili!
