Hi peeps,

If you're thinking about joining a local Christmas Bird Count this Sunday,
there are plenty to choose from just west of the Hudson in Jersey City. All
are welcome to the accessible, limited-movement count in Harsimus Cemetery
1 to 3 pm. Feel free to bring a family member or friend ... just give me a
heads up so we pack enough supplies.

Thank you to Shayna for locking down the location for us, and to Yamina and
Rosalyn for helping to organize! And happy birding, wherever you choose to
point your bins.
