Join a Bird Count Team on Dec 14th!
Area birders and nature enthusiasts are invited to participate in the annual Christmas Bird Count on Sunday, Dec.14.  Tens of thousands of volunteers will participate in more than 2,000 individual counts scheduled to take place throughout the Americas from mid-December to early January. The Christmas Bird Count started in 1900 as an alternative event to the over-hunting of birds for feathers for the millinery trade.The collected data contributes to the U.S. governmentís natural history monitoring database.  

SAAS birders count species within a 15-mile diameter circle centered in Hudson Falls. The circle includes the city of Glens Falls, the villages of South Glens Falls, Fort Edward, and Hudson Falls, as well as much of the towns of Queensbury, Fort Edward, and Moreau.


You do not need to be a bird identification expert to participate. Birders of all skill levels are needed. Non-birders are welcome to help spot birds or keep team records. Most of the birding is done from a car, but some teams may walk along trails or in area parks. The many diverse habitats within the SAAS count circle make for interesting observations. Itís also a fun way to get to know area birders and increase your skills.


To join a count team for a whole or partial day, contact Linda White at 518-792-4446 or 518-222-5675.

You can now make a secure donation online through NYCharities.org!
