Winter Bird Count Warm Up

November 19, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Thursday, Nov. 19, at 6:30 p.m., the Belfast Free Library and Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition will co-host a virtual program on Zoom, “Winter Bird Count Warm Up: Preparing for the annual Christmas Bird Count” with Seth Benz.

To register for this presentation please go to belfastlibrary.org/virtual-programs and follow the link.

“If you have ever wondered what a Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is all about, look no further,” said the Library, in a news release.

Seth Benz, who coordinates the North Penobscot Bay count along with the Schoodic Point count, will cover the basics of the Christmas Bird Count, including where, when, and how to get involved. Do you have backyard bird feeders? Do you love hiking trails or driving back roads in winter? Are you simply curious to learn more about the birds with which people share this small part of the planet?

Seth Benz is the director of bird ecology at Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park. He has lived on a seabird island, counted hawks from a mountain top, caught peregrine falcons on an east coast barrier island, and introduced thousands of people to the pleasures of birds and birding.
