Birders Wanted

Annual Christmas count set for Dec. 30

The annual Putnam County Christmas Bird Count takes place on Friday, Dec. 30. Teams will be assigned areas to roam and census all the birds they see during a set time. This is the 117th year of the Audubon Society’s count, making it the longest-running citizen-science project in the country.

Putnam County birders have been participating for 63 years. Volunteers with or without bird identification experience are welcome. Call Charlie Roberto at 845-270-2978 or email
