Yolo Audubon will host our 50th consecutive Putah Creek Christmas Bird Count on Sunday, December 20th. Complete information about the CBC is located here.
Due to the Covid-19 situation, there are some significant changes to the CBC protocols this year.
- We will confirm we are actually holding the count on Nov 15, pending local Covid ordinances. Based on current Covid regulations, we are optimistic we will hold the count.
- Masks or social distancing are required at all times. No carpooling with people outside your bubble. This may limit team sizes, including the number of vehicles. Our primary goal is to cover the usual routes from past years, even if only 1 or 2 people are able to cover a route.
- No social gatherings before or after the count.
- Sign-up is directly through an Area Leader only. Contact info for Area Leaders is here. All day-of-count details are arranged by respective Area Leaders. Some areas require more hiking, or more walking, or more birding by car. If you want assistance choosing an area, contact the CBC Organizer and Compiler, Steve Hampton.
This year, our CBC Bird-ID Workshop will be conducted via Zoom on Wednesday, December 9th at 7:00pm. Details and a link to register can be found here (coming soon).
The post-CBC Compilation session will also be held via Zoom. Details and a link to register can be found here (coming soon).
