Rydell and Glacial Ridge National Wildlife Refuges (NWR) will be hosting their 3rd Annual Christmas Bird Count on Thursday, December 14th. People interested in participating do not need to be experienced birders. This event can serve as a learning experience for new birders and those individuals will be paired up with Refuge staff or more experienced volunteers. Participants should meet at the Rydell NWR Visitor Center at 8:00am for coffee and a brief meeting. Bring binoculars and a bird book if you have them. If not, we’ll have some on hand for visitor use. Counting will take place within a 15-mile diameter circle that stretches from Erskine west to the center of Glacial Ridge NWR. Participants can count from a vehicle or on foot, depending on their preference and the weather conditions that day. Refuge staff will host a potluck lunch back at the Visitor Center at noon. After a hearty lunch, folks can “call it a day”, or can go back out and continue to search for birds. Please RSVP no later than December 12th to Lisa at 218-687-2229 x10 or lisa_wiersma@fws.gov. If you have questions or need more information on the count, call Ben Walker at 218-687-2229 x12.
