Little Lakes Christmas Bird Count – Saturday, December 29th, 2018

December 29, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 5:00 pm

This year marks the 119th count nationwide and the 67th count for the area. The count date is Saturday, December 29, 2018. Birds seen during the count week of December 26 to January 1 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. New birders can be paired up with experienced birders. If you are interested, contact one of the leaders.

The afternoon compiling meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. at the American Hotel, located at the SE corner of Routes 5 & 20 in the village of Lima. As an expression of our appreciation for letting us meet at this location, please order something from the menu. They are known for their tasty soups.
