      2006/2007 Illinois (bordering Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky) Christmas Bird Count Circles, dates and contact information
      The official Christmas Bird Count season runs from December 14 to January 5. For more information and for results of prior years, see www.audubon.org/bird/cbc
      The new Christmas Bird Count editor for Illinois is Paul Sweet, 2114 Elisha Ave, Zion, IL 60099, Pwsweetzion@... (847)-746-5139.
      Within each geographic area, the counts are listed by date (if known). Where no current date is available, last year's is indicated, from which one might guess at this year's date. Please contact the compilers for meeting times and places, and for area assignments. Some groups meet the evening before, and lodging may be provided within the count area. Many counts require advance registration.
