The mission of the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society is to provide opportunities to enjoy and learn about birds and other wildlife and to promote conservation and restoration of the habitats that support them.
Seventeen birders braved the freezing temperatures and snowy ground to complete our Christmas Bird Count on Friday, December 15. This is Highlands and we are used to it. It did not seem to bother the birds for we found 47 species and a total of 1,109 individuals. The number of species was a high number for the last several years. Details will be published later, or you can visit the National Audubon web site for a complete listing of the species observed.
