Little Lakes Christmas Bird Count

Saturday, December 31, 2022

This year marks the 123rd count nationwide and the 71st count for the area. Birds seen during the count week of December 28 to January 3 may be called in to the leaders for inclusion in the tally. The center of the 15-mile diameter circle is the outlet at the north end of Hemlock 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. 

No compilation meeting is planned at this time. People are free to meet at the American Hotel in Lima to socialize and to share results informally.
