      113th Audubon Christmas Bird Count in Heber Valley
      8 a.m.- 4 p.m. Saturday, January 5
      Local birders and nature enthusiasts are invited to participate in the 113thAnnual Audubon Christmas Bird Count at 8 a.m. Saturday, January 5 2013 at the Wasatch Mountain State Park Visitor Center. Beginner, intermediate, and expert birders are welcome to participate.

      The Christmas Bird Count began more than a century ago when scientist Frank Chapman changed the course of ornithological history. In 1900, Chapman led a small group on an alternative to the side hunt, when teams competed to see who could shoot the most game. Instead, Chapman proposed they identify, count, and record all the birds they saw, founding what is now considered to be the world's most significant citizen-based conservation effort.

      The data collected by Christmas Bird Count participants over the years provides a wealth of information to researchers interested in the long-term study of early winter bird populations across North America.

      For more information or to register, contact Park Naturalist Kathy Donnell at 435-654-1791 or kathydonnell@.... More information is also available atwww.audubon.org/bird/cbc.
