This year marks the 121th count nationwide and the 69th count for the area. The count date is Saturday, December 26, 2020. Birds seen during the count week of December 23 to December 29 may be called in to the leaders for inclusion in the tally.
The center of the 15 mile diameter circle is the outlet of Hemlock Lake, at the north end of the lake. The circle includes all of Conesus, Hemlock, Canadice and Honeoye Lakes, and a large area to the north. The dividing line between the lakes is the height of land between the lakes. It is important for the coverage in each of the 5 areas to be as consistent as possible, year to year, for meaningful evaluation of the count area. Your participation in this worthy endeavor would be greatly appreciated. Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is crucial to contact the circle compiler this year to receive an assignment and to receive up-to-date information on any changes to the regular count procedure.
