Christmas Bird Count Season is Upon Us!

We are preparing for two upcoming Christmas Bird Counts this weekend: Saturday, December 18th [Rockford] and Sunday, December 19th [Rock Cut State Park]. The weather looks to be cold but not as bad as past counts.

If you haven’t signed up for a count, head on over to Audubon and sign up to one in your area!

Here’s a wonderful map of the majority of count circles in Illinois and date/contact information.

Ermine (Mustela erminea)

When we are out counting we always try to keep an eye for other cool creatures besides birds.
