Audubon Christmas Bird Count takes flight
Toting binoculars, some people will don heavy clothing to brave the winter conditions Dec. 29. Others will sit in the comfort of their homes monitoring birdfeeders.
Their goal is the same: Count as many species and individual birds as possible starting at 8 a.m.
Red Wing is again part of the Audubon Christmas Bird Count, which began Dec. 14 and continues through Jan. 5 across North America. The research gathered in the 114th count will help shape conservation decisions.
