The 2018 Carrizo Plain CBC will be on Saturday, December 29th. Registration must be submitted by December 15. The Carrizo Plain Christmas Bird Count is on a different day than the Morro Bay CBC, and our local birders are encouraged to participate in both counts.

Registration for the Carrizo Plain CBC is less formal and can be done by contacting Roger Zachary at or 805-458-8838 (cell).

We will meeting at the Community Center/Fire Station on Soda Lake Road at 8:00 a.m. 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.
