People needed to help with bird count
Volunteers are needed for the 104th annual National Audubon Society bird count, scheduled 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 20 in the Danville area. This will be the 56th consecutive year that Danville has participated in the count.
Anyone interested in helping with the bird count is asked to call Neil or Ginny Eklund at (859) 236-8807 and leave message, or e-mail at email@example.com. The Eklunds said newcomers are welcome.
"We try to get at least one veteran participant in each group of counters and each group will do its count in a particular sector of the count area, " Neil Eklund said. The Danville count area includes the interior of a circle extending 7.5 miles from the Boyle County Courthouse.
Membership in the Audubon Society is not required, but a $5 participation fee is required of all participants over the age of 18. The fee helps defray costs of compilation and publication of the international data. The count includes provinces of Canada and some areas of the Caribbean.
Last year, the 23 participants tallied 12,993 birds that represented 57 species. Two species - muscovy duck and rufous hummingbird - are rare for this area. The large number of birds was due to the almost 10,000 starlings counted.
