The Christmas Bird Count is coming up on Sunday (12/23). It’s a program put on by the National Audubon Society. In Springfield, bird-lovers within a set 7.5-mile radius can participate. And the Illinois Audubon Society is hosting a count at Adams Wildlife Sanctuary at 2315 Clear Lake Avenue. Volunteers are invited to come help count birds there. Rachel Otwell recently spoke with Joanne Fessett with the Illinois Audubon Society about it:
- Those interested in doing their own bird count should call Dave Bohlen at 217-782-6697.
- For more information about the bird count at Adams Wildlife Sanctuary, call 217-544-2473.
