Christmas Bird Count volunteers needed

Thursday, December 18, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano

On Sunday, birders and bird enthusiasts are invited to take part in the Fourth Annual Lost Pines Christmas Bird Count. The count will take place from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Lost Pines Resort, though volunteers are not required to stay the whole time. The event is part of a nationwide bird count and one of 50 counts taking place in Texas. The resort is in a region that is home to about 250 bird species. Last year, volunteers counted 122 different species among the 9,843 birds tallied. Online registration closes today, but birders can continue to register by phone. The count is a collaborative effort among the Lower Colorado River Authority’s McKinney Roughs Nature Park, Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa, Bastrop County Audubon Society, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Lost Pines Master Naturalists, and the National Audubon Society. More information can be found here.
