Always a popular event, Steve Hampton returns to host a Bird ID workshop in advance of our 50th annual Putah Creek Christmas Bird Count (CBC). Steve will share data and trends from previous counts, focusing on climate change and the fire history of the count, as well as provide helpful tips on bird ID.

The CBC is scheduled for Sunday, December 20th. Our 15-mile diameter count circle centers on Putah Creek and is divided into ten different areas, each with its own plan regarding coverage, teams, start time, and method of travel (car, foot, hiking, bike, etc.). Covid-19 protocols are forcing us to change many of our traditional CBC practices. Up-to-date information about the count and contact information for the Area Leaders is here on the Yolo Audubon website.

Steve’s Bird ID workshop will be conducted via Zoom. There is no cost to attend but advance registration is required.

This program was recorded and is available for viewing on the YAS YouTube channel.
