Christmas Bird Count. (our 67th year!). Join one of our teams and spend the day counting the birds in the assigned section of the count circle.  Feeders that are in the count circle may be included in this count. Renee Davis and Patrick Dechon are co-chairing the count this year. (Call Renee before 7 pm at 482-5044 to sign up for a team or feeder count.  Call Patrick’s cell phone  at 914-388-7298 to report your results.)   This is a transition year for the count.  It is the last year that Renee with be chairing and the first year that Patrick will be chairing.  Patrick has done the count for many years with Valerie Freer’s team. The last few years he has led a team that has included students and his own children on this special day to count a select area of   Sullivan County winter birds. Join a team.  It is a fun-filled day with hopefully lots of birds.   Learn more about our Christmas Bird Count.

First Spring meeting 6 pm at Sullivan County Community College.  A light supper of pizza and salad will precede the program. Melinda Cormier, SCAS member, will present a program on Cinereous Vultures. These are Old World vultures, designated as “threatened” on the IUCN Red List. This program will highlight the differences between North American vultures, like the Turkey Vulture. Melinda will share exciting video, demonstrating a successful enrichment project for the Cinereous Vultures at Binghamton (NY) Zoo. Enrichment for captive species plays a key role in conservation of wild populations. Come and hear Melinda’s enthusiasm for this project.
