The 19th Lyle Christmas Bird Count will be held a month from today, on Sunday, December 18th. Please mark your calendars accordingly.

The Lyle Count has some notoriety both in Washington as well as the Western Hemisphere…. and the Universe for that matter. For example, last year, on the 2015 Lyle Christmas Bird Count, we had the highest number of Lewis’s Woodpeckers of any count circle in the Universe. We had 229 Lewis’s Woodpeckers and the next count circle was Red Bluff, California with 125 ( yes almost half our total). Medford, Oregon had 114. The Lewis’s Woodpeckers were effectively hanging from the trees like Christmas Tree ornaments.. appropriately.

If you want to participate in this year’s count, please give me at 503.881.5889 or email.

I am planning to host our annual count compilation dinner with homemade vegetarian chili and corn bread. Klickitat Canyon winery has graciously donated wine for our count compilation gathering. Feel free to bring a potluck dish or not..

Also, please let me know if you want to discontinue receiving these notices. I have been compiling this mailing list forever and some of you may have skipped the country, or are not birding any longer. Thanks.

Thanks again to all past participants who have made the Lyle Count a special experience in our part of the world,
