“Winter Bird Count Warm Up: Preparing for the annual Christmas Bird Count” with Seth Benz.
If you have ever wondered what a Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is all about, look no further. Seth Benz, our local North Penobscot Bay CBC coordinator, will cover the basics of the Christmas Bird Count, including where, when, and how to get involved. Do you have backyard bird feeders? You can participate. Do you love hiking trails or driving back roads in winter? This count could be for you. Are you simply curious to learn more about the birds with which we share this small part of the planet? This presentation is for you. Join us!
Seth Benz is the director of bird ecology at Schoodic Institute in Acadia National Park. He has lived on a seabird island, counted hawks from a mountain top, caught peregrine falcons on an east coast barrier island, and introduced thousands of people to the pleasures of birds and birding.
