The annual Pakenham-Arnprior Christmas Bird Count is being held on — you guessed it — Boxing Day! The count is a full-day event with a potluck dinner/compilation afterwards. Participants should have some experience in identifying birds; individuals are assigned an area to cover and paired so no one goes alone.
As reported at our last meeting, Evening Grosbeaks have started to show up after years of absence at local feeders and hopefully their numbers will return to at least double digits on our 2018 count.
If you want to keep track of your feeder birds or participate in the count, please contact Michael Runtz at email@example.com or at 613- 387-2503.
