Carrizo Plain CBC 2014

The Carrizo Plain CBC will be on January 3, 2015. Registration must be submitted by December 15. The Carrizo Plain Christmas Bird Count is on a different day than the SLO County CBC, and our local birders are encouraged to participate in both counts. both are free this year. Registration for the Carrizo CBC s less formal and can be done by emailing contacting Roger Zachary at rzachary@charter.net or (805) 466-6222

We will meeting at the Community Center/Fire Station on Soda Lake Road at 8:00 a.m. There is no fee. We usually break the group into 7-8 parties in the morning then re- group at 1 p.m. for lunch and to check the number of species observed. We may be assigning section leaders for those who are dedicated and knowledgeable of certain areas. Bring your own food/ water and come with a full tank of gas. Several parties bird the afternoon depending on what we need to find or confirm. We're looking forward to a productive count as well as a great day of birding.

If you are an experienced birder and know the area please email or call me to let me know that you are participating by no later than Dec. 15.
