The JVAS CBC (the Culp Count) is Saturday, December 17, 2022. We need volunteers to scan the fields, skies, backyards, ponds, lakes – anywhere birds might be found. If you live in the circle, you can be a feeder watcher and count your backyard birds, or you can be a field observer and cover a certain section of the count circle, which is centered at Culp in Sinking Valley. We encourage counters to work in teams – the more eyes the better!
The Tally Rally will be held at the U.S. Hotel Tavern, 401 S. Juniata St., Hollidaysburg, PA 16648. Each person pays their way. We’ll meet at 5 pm in the Gold Room, order from the menu, and after we eat, we will do the bird species tally. Here’s the menu. You don’t have to be a counter to join us, but let Laura know by Saturday, Dec. 10 if you plan to attend since seating is limited.
Counters will be assigned a section of the circle, so counts don’t overlap. Let John or Laura know what section you’d like to cover. Section include Northern Altoona, Sinking Valley, Bellwood, Canoe Creek State Park, Tyrone-Tipton, Canoe Valley, Tyrone Treatment Plant, State Game Lands, Brush Mountain (NE end),Juniata River Corridor.
