MIDWINTER COUNT: Saturday, January 27, 2018

The Howard County Bird Club's annual midwinter count is held each year on the first Saturday of February. Prior years have tallied 85-94 species of birds on the count. Birders of all skill levels are encouraged to participate--whether or not you are a Bird Club member. The county is divided into seven areas, which are used for all annual counts. Each area has an area coordinator. After a hard day of birding, we all gather at a member's house for the tally rally (a potluck dinner, count of species, and general bragging rights!)

Have more questions?  Email Joe Hanfman.

Tally Rally will be held at Jeff and Karen Culler's home, 2672 Thornbrook Road, Ellicott City, MD 21042. Arrive anytime after 5:30, diner will be served at 6:45. Bring what you wish as a side dish and the club will provide vegetarian and meat lasagnas. We look forward to seeing everyone.
