Winter Bird Identification & Christmas Bird Count Prep

 Susan Marsh & Susan Patla, JH Bird & Nature Club

Join the flock - Christmas Bird Count is on for December and we need volunteers!


Is that a Black-capped or a Mountain Chickadee? Ducks at 10º below? Chickadees in a whiteout?  Crows vs. Ravens in the ice fog?  Cassin's or House Finches fighting over the feeders?  No problem! Susan & Bernie team up to teach the basics of identifying our winter birds and outline preparations for this year's Christmas Bird Count.


Christmas Bird Count (CBC)

This year’s Jackson Hole Christmas Bird Count will take place on Saturday, December 21.  In addition to  identification challenges we'll talk about protocols, areas to cover and what you can expect to find. This is a community effort so join birders across North America and beyond in the largest and oldest Citizen Science project in the world.  We will have our usual pre-count breakfast at Bubba’s at 7:30 AM on the 21st, always a fun way to start the day. 


To sign up for an area or if you have any questions about the count, Please contact Susan Marsh 307-733-5744 or

Susan Marsh is an author, artist and naturalist. Susan Patla is a retired avian biologist.  Both are long-time JH Bird & Nature Club members and deeply engaged in Jackson Hole conservation issues.
