2019 La Crosse Area Christmas Bird Counts

2019 La Crosse Area Christmas Bird Counts

Saturday, December 14, 2019

The 2019 Audubon Christmas Bird Count is getting close and we are getting organized. This is a big event and we can always use more help!!There are two types of volunteers that take part in our counts – Section Counters and Feeder Counters. Section Counters go in the field and count as many birds as possible in an assigned section of the circle, either alone or as part of a team. Feeder Counters count the birds in their own yard (as long as they live in a count circle).
This year, there will be at least 2 Christmas Bird Counts held in the Coulee Region. The La Crosse Area count will be held on Saturday, December 14th and the Trempealeau count will be held on Sunday, December 15th . If you enjoy counting birds, your help with either or both counts would be greatly appreciated!
The La Crosse Area Christmas Bird Count, which is hosted by the Coulee Region Audubon Society, counts all the birds found inside a count circle that is centered on the La Crosse County courthouse in downtown La Crosse. The Trempealeau Christmas Bird Count has a count circle with its center point in the middle of the village of Trempealeau. It is only a halfcircle as it only includes the area east of the state line which runs down the main channel of the Mississippi River.
If you are available on Saturday, December 14th and/or Sunday, December 15th, and would like to take part in the La Crosse Area and/or Trempealeau Christmas Bird Counts as either a Section Counter or as a Feeder Counter, we would really appreciate your help! Birders of all skill levels are encouraged to participate. New section counters are encouraged to join an experienced counter as part of a team but can work on their own if that is what they prefer.
