This count is centered about 1/3 miles east of S. Riverside along 15 mile. The count is scheduled for Sunday December 27th 2015 with the 28th being a weather make up day.
I have made arrangements with Clyde's (address below) to open early for us for breakfast. They will be expecting us at 6:30am for pre count breakfast, planning and strategizing. I will have maps of the circle available for everyone and will assign sections in an attempt to best cover the circle. I am sure at least one or two cars will go out owling prior to breakfast, weather dependent of course. There are no plans to meet for lunch at this time. Some will choose to pack a sandwich or snacks or you may want to grab a bite somewhere. Dinner and the count down to compile the lists will be at Cozy Corners.
Clyde's is located right across the street from Chippewa County International Airport:
5224 W M 80
Kincheloe, MI 49788
Cozy Corners Tavern & Grill, East 15 Mile Road, Barbeau, MI - is at the east end of the road where it dead ends at the St. Mary's River.
Menu can be found on their web site: http://www.cozycornersbarbeau.com/
Drop me a note with CBC in the subject line if you are interested in joining this count. We only had 36 species last year and finches were all but non existent. We hope to top 40 this year. Diversity is low but quality is really high on this email@example.com
Thanks and Good Birding!
