The Mad Birders will be participating in the 116th Audubon Christmas Bird Count. Our circle includes parts of the Mad River Valley, Roxbury, Northfield and Berlin (Pond) and our count day this year is Friday, December 18th. Teams of Mad Birders will set out at first light in whatever weather nature gives us that day to count as many birds as they can see or hear on predetermined routes throughout our circle. Our statistics will become part of one of the longest running citizen science projects in history, which gathers data on the presence or absence of various species of birds throughout the world. After our day in the field we will gather together for a sumptuous pot luck supper to report on the birds we found, swap stories and celebrate nature and friendship. All are welcome to participate.
