Dear prospective KC CBC'ers, The 119th Christmas Bird Count season is rapidly approaching! As KC compiler, I would like to invite birders of all levels to participate again, or for the first time. Here are a few details to consider: * Count day and date: Sunday, December 30. * The KC count area is a 15-mile diameter circle centered on Unity Village. and divided into eight (8) sections * Participation involves a traveling count, typically on foot, but in some areas by automobile. * Feeder watching in the suburban environs of Raytown and Lee's Summit is encouraged for those area residents who may have trouble getting out. * New birders, first time participants and others who so request will be placed with experienced counters. * Section assignments and section leaders will be identified and information exchanged between participants and leaders after signing up. * A post-count compilation dinner will be held at the Perkins restaurant in Lee's Summit (Hwys. 50 & 291) for those who still have (or need) the energy. * Winter weather may slow us down, but nothing short of a major ice storm or blizzard will cause the count to be canceled and rescheduled. *Section assignments will remain the same for previous participants, unless otherwise requested. I ask that new participants remain flexible in accepting section assignments. If you indicate a preference, I'll make every effort to place you in the section where you want to count. *Please contact me to sign up or to request more information. Happy Counting, Mike Stoakes 816-554-1956 / mstoakes@juno.com
