Sunday Dec. 17, 2023 is the day of the 120th Rochester Christmas Bird Count. With this
traditional activity we will renew our commitment to science and birding.
This is a significant opportunity:
• to develop your birding skills in the field
• to make connections in the birding community
• to contribute to Citizen Science
• to attend the tally dinner, exchange stories, enjoy pizza and make birdy friends.
We need your help and welcome all skill levels.
Please join us!!!
These sector leaders for the RCBC have consented to coordinate the field work for the count
of our winter birds. To participate in the count, contact them or Norma Platt. Be sure to ask your leader for details.
