Good morning, it is the season of Christmas Bird Counts! The Clinton CBC will be Sunday, December 21, 2014 this year. If you are a “regular” Clinton CBC’er, please join us again and we always welcome new friends to bird with us. Please register at the following link through the Audubon website at http://birds.audubon.org/get-involved-christmas-bird-count-find-count-near-you . Owling is always an option in the morning and we have had great birds show up on count day, including a Snowy Owl guest appearance last year. A post count dinner will follow at JR’s Hometown Grill and Pub in Tecumseh at 5:30 p.m., parking is in back. Please see the link for more details, they are open until 9 p.m. on Sunday: http://www.jrsgrillandpub.com/ .
With permission from the Lenawee County Parks we were able to replace the existing dilapidated boxes with new at Bicentennial Park near Tipton, MI.
This is one of four new houses installed at the park on Sunday. These house will be checked weekly for Bluebird activity. Nesting data will be collected and submitted to Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s “Nestwatch” website.
