OLD TOWN — Hirundo joins the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count to survey the Orono-Old Town Area meeting at 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, Dysarts Deli, 1667 Bennoch Rd.
About the Christmas Bird Count:
The annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) enlists thousands of volunteers across the western hemisphere to count every bird they see and hear. For more than a century, the CBC has been a citizen science tradition for hundreds of Audubon chapters and organizations.
The 118th Annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count will take place December 14, 2017 to January 5, 2018. This event’s long record of data-keeping provides valuable insight into bird populations and the health of their habitats, helping wildlife organizations implement conservation strategies.
