This year marks the 112th National Audubon Society Christmas Bird Count. The Monroe, MI (MIMO) count will be conducted on Saturday, December 17, 2011.

The menu list at right has additional information regarding the history of the count, and specifics of the Monroe CBC. If interested in joining us, please let me know at Don't worry if you are a novice birder, we'll try to match you with more experienced birders. If you live inside the count circle and can't get that day, then consider conducting a feeder watch. Just send me an e-mail with your address and your list of species seen during the day. Also, keep track of any unusual sightings seen 3 days prior to or after the count date; these birds can be tallied as part of the count week total.

Happy CBC'ing!
