Christmas Bird Count for Kids

January 10, 2015

The first CBC4Kids in Harford County, MD took place at Swan Harbor Farm in Havre de Grace on January 10th. A total of 31 species were seen - 407 birds. We had four teams (one 4-7 years, three 8-16 years), 16 kids participated, 12 adults, and 8 awesome volunteers. 

Thank you to our sponsors - Harford Bird Club, Chesapeake Audubon, Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation, and the Harford Glen Environmental Education Center.  And thanks to our trip leaders Tim Houghton, Dennis Kirkwood, Phil Powers and Ruth Bergstrom, and Mary Murray for help with the binoculars, Peggy Eppig for sharing the Agricultural Center with us,  Fred Brundick - photographer, and Jean Scocca for registration and homemade cookies!
