JORDAN RIVER CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT, FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, 2021 By Jeanne Le Ber, Member, Board of Directors, GSLA

Due to concerns with covid-19 transmission, this year’s Jordan River Christmas Bird Count (JR-CBC),scheduled for Friday, January 1, 2021, will be conducted in “bubble” teams. The count circle, which centers at the Utah-Salt Lake County line on I-15, is divided into nine teams; the designated team leader will select the one to four members for her or his team with whom he or she feels “safe” birding.

The team leaders will be responsible for establishing the time and place their teams meet and start birding. I will supply the team leaders with the needed count materials ahead of the count. Team leaders can report their bird sightings to me via email or eBird list. Sometimes, there are surprises. On January1, 2019, during the JR-CBC, the Saratoga team spotted an Orange-crowned Warbler!

In December, I plan to contact JR-CBC 2019 Team Leaders, listed in table below, to ask for their participation. If you would like to lead a team or volunteer, please contact me.
