Poem - Christmas Bird Count

The Christmas bird count is getting near
All birdies will be counted, have no fear.

With binoculars and bird books in hand
We'll cover all of Monroe County's land.

It's as easy as one two three.
We'll count birds on land, in the sky, even in a tree.

Fill out your cards and give them to Jerry.
Lots of participation will make his face merry!

December 14, 2008 is the date.
Those counting owls will be first out the gate.

If you want to part of this exciting day
$5.00 is all you'll have to pay.

Gas tanks full, we're ready to drive.
ESBA is still alive!

At the end of the day and there's no more sun
We'll meet at Michigan Bar for the count, food and fun.

Birding is really a fun sport!
To Jerry your bird numbers you must report.

So if you're a true birder with a heart
This Christmas Bird count you must take part!
