There will be no General Meeting in January. Tampa Audubon wishes you a "Very Happy New Year!"
Come participate with us in the 2015 Christmas Bird Count (CBC) ! ! !
- Christmas Bird Count
The 115th Annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count will take place Dec 14, 2014 to January 5, 2015 (the dates for the 2 CBCs in Hillsborough County are 12/14 and 1/3 - see details here). In all, Florida has 61 counts, from the Dry Tortugas to Pensacola! The longest running Citizen Science survey in the world, Christmas Bird Count provides critical data on population trends. Tens of thousands of participants know that it is also a lot of fun. Data from the over 2,300 circles are entered after the count and become available to query under the Data & Research link. For more information on the history of the CBC, visit the Audubon website here.
At our February 5th General Meeting, come hear Rich Crete talk about the "Backyard Birding & Great Backyard Bird Count."
