2016 Christmas Count

Please join Roaring Fork Audubon for the 41st Annual Christmas Bird Count. There will be 3 trip leaders this year. This is a great time to get acquainted with wintering birds and birders in the Roaring Fork Valley and share a long time tradition with Roaring Fork Audubon. We will join together for lunch at “town restaurant” in Carbondale to check with all groups and exchange birding highlights. Everyone is welcome no matter what your birding skills might be. It’s a great time to learn.
