The North American Migration Count is like the Christmas Bird Count, but in the spring and on a county-sized scale. This year, the count will be happening on Saturday, May 11. Mark your calendars!
This will be my third year as coordinator for La Paz County for the count. In 2011, four teams found 113 species; in 2012, three teams found 109 species! It would be fantastic to get more coverage of the county this year, so please shoot me an email if you would be interested in birding a chunk of La Paz County this May 11! Every additional observer makes a huge difference in the NAMC in underbirded La Paz. My email address is lbharter at gmail dot com.
