Bemidji Christmas Bird Count
We will gather on the morning of Saturday, December 15 at the Minnesota Nice Cafe by the downtown post office between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. to organize teams to go out and census our regional birds. We will get back together again at Bridget's Pub between 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to compile our totals for the count. There is no fee to participate but it is appreciated if those taking part can help with the count through at least half the day or until noon.

Another opportunity to get out and enjoy nature and the beauties of the headwaters of the Mississippi region will take place on Monday December 17, 2018 when the annual Itasca State Park Christmas Bird Count (CBC) will take place. We will rendezvous at the Visitor Center in the park between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. to assign teams and areas in which to count birds for the day. Participants usually bring a sack lunch and also enjoy Christmas cookies when we meet at noon back at the visitor center. You can ski, snowshoe or hike in the park or participate by driving the roads around Itasca State Park within the 15 mile diameter circle that is our count area.
