Seward Christmas Bird Count Saturday December 27th

Seward, Alaska

This year's Seward CBC will be Saturday, December 27th. Field Counters will meet at 9 am at Rez Art at 320 Third Ave to confirm their area and team assignments. Be prepared to walk and drive with the car windows open. Dress for the weather, and bring more layers in case; bring lunch, snacks, and beverages for a full day outside. Binoculars, spotting scope, and bird book are helpful. A great attitude is the best tool!

The backup weather day will be Sunday, December 28, and if that fails, we'll try for the next weekend January 3/4 TBA. 

Results will be tallied at 4 pm at the Rez Art. Feeder Watchers are welcome to attend the tally or to email their results.

Count Week is December 24-26, and December 28-30.  During Count Week, only the kind of bird is noted, not the numbers. If you hear owls or see any unusual birds, let me know. You do not have to be a Count Day participant to share your Count Week birds.

Like last year, the National Audubon Society no longer requires the $5 fee as the national results will be posted on-line. Donations to help with the CBC are always appreciated.

Please contact Carol Griswold at c_griz at for more information. Let me know if you plan to participate either as a Field Counter or as a Feeder Watcher. Out-of-town birders are welcome.

Happy Birding!

Seward CBC Compiler
