CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNTS DECEMBER 14 - JANUARY 14

The Kansas Ornithological Society's annual Kansas Christmas Bird Counts will last a full month this winter, running Dec. 14-Jan. 14, 2006. This series of events helps biologists glean information on bird population trends and gives wildlife enthusiasts a chance to spot their favorite bird or discover ones they've never seen.

The event is co-sponsored by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and Audubon of Kansas. A schedule of events is listed below. For additional information regarding these counts, contact Chuck Otte at otte@nqks.com. Some events may require a fee to participate.
