Christmas Bird Counts on TV

I had a chance to talk about Christmas Bird Counts on local TV today. Dan Zarlenga, of Missouri Department of Conservation, set up the interview with John Fuller of KPLR-TV Channel 11 in Saint Louis MO. I had a blast! The broadcasters and staff could not have been nicer. I hope it will motivate a few more people to volunteer their time with Christmas Bird Counts.

  1. Anne -- this is great! Nice job on the interview. How many volunteers do you need? I'm really thinking about it...

  2. Alan, you are the best! I could use 5 or 10 more folks!

  3. Wish we were there! Counts for this area are complete, I think. It's more of a "Christmas-y" than a "Christmas" count here ;-)

  4. A good friend and great local birder passed away.Many of the local birders new him or at least saw him around over many years.He was a wealth of knowledge And a great teacher of birding.Please say a prayer for our brother Bill Rudden

  5. It was always fun to run into Bill in the field. He has so much fun birding, and at the same time, he was meticulous about identifications. He always shared his knowledge & enthusiasm. He will very much be missed.
