Holiday Bird Counts

Citizen scientists needed

The Putnam Highlands Audubon Society has two upcoming events at which birdwatchers can help with the oldest citizen science project in North America. Join the Northern Westchester Count in Peekskill on Saturday, Dec. 16, or the Putnam County Count on Saturday, Dec. 30, or both.

Volunteers can participate when and for as long as they choose; the tally will begin at 5 p.m. and data submitted to Audubon will help create a snapshot of bird populations across the continent. See or email Charlie Roberto at
