Date: Friday January 01, 2021

Time: 7:00 AM

Join us for this year's Angwin Christmas Bird Count - CBC on Friday, January 1, 2021 (NSAS Event)


Join us for this year’s Angwin Christmas Bird Count (CBC)! The Angwin CBC in Napa County began in 1972 and was organized by Dr. Floyd Hayes, a biology professor at Pacific Union College. Napa-Solano Audubon took official ownership of the CBC in 2009. Murray Berner is our organizer and compiler who coordinates our 60 -75 participants to help cover our 15 mile circle. This circle includes the communities of St. Helena, Deer Park, Angwin, and Pope Valley, as well as Los Posadas State Forest, Bell Canyon, Lake Hennessey, and the western shores of Lake Berryessa. This CBC typically counts over 130 species. Due to the wildfires that have impacted parts of the count circle, it is especially important that we cover the circle well—this year and in the years to come—in order to follow and document the significant changes to birdlife that will occur. Start the New Year off with a blast by participating in the Angwin CBC! For more information on how to participate, contact Murray Berner at vireocity@hotmail.com .
