A reminder that the Rockford CBC will be held on Saturday, December 15. The count generally covers the northwest quadrant of the City of Rockford and northwest Winnebago County. The eastern boundary roughly follows the Rock River from downtown Rockford to Rockton. The southern arc is generally US 20 bypass from Meridian Road west to Berglund Rd. The northwest corner is Sugar River FP. If you signed up for the count at the Rockford Bird Club meeting in October, but haven’t heard from me, don’t worry. I have your name and the sheet, and you will be assigned to a team. You will hear from (or you are) a team captain.

If you don’t have time to participate for at least one-half of a day, but live iwthin the count circle and would like to count birds at your feeder, please let me know by email at twotringas@inwave.com I will mail you a feeder form.

Remember that there is a $5 fee to participate for anyone over 19. The fee is not charged to feeder watchers.

If you have questions, you can email me at the above address or call 815-968-4732. Thanks.
