The 13th Annual Central Loudoun Christmas Bird Count is coming up! Sunday, December 27.
Everyone is welcome, both beginners and expert birders (new birders are teamed with experienced birders and will no doubt get hooked!).
If you are interested in participating for the whole day or just part of the day, Sign Up Online or contact Joe Coleman at 540-554-2542 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Following the count we’ll have a Tally Rally to hear stories from the day and see what birds we saw around Loudoun. Lots of fun!
Started in 1899, these surveys are held all over the country, with the results used to better understand bird populations and dynamics.
The count-circle has a 15-mile diameter and covers 177 square miles of Loudoun’s countryside: north to Waterford, south to Aldie, east to Ashburn, and west to Purcellville. This part of Loudoun County includes areas that not only have beautiful scenery but also are full of birds.
