Bird Count at Marsh's Falls

The snow is on the ground and ice on the water which means it is time for the December bird count at Marsh's Falls. It may appear that there aren't too many species around this time of year but last Christmas we counted 7 American Goldfinches, 14 Pine Siskins and 3 Purple Finches in addition to the usual Blue Jays and Chickadees. Start time will likely be in the 9 a.m.-10 a.m. range. If you are interested in joining the group please contact Mike Peppard who will provide more information.
