Lake Ray Hubbard Christmas Bird Count, December 16, 2012
Some of the highlights from past CBC's have been Red-Breasted Merganser, Lesser
Black-backed Gull, and Sora Rail. Help make the 113th Count another success
as we count around Lake Ray Hubbard, city parks, wetlands, riparian areas, and
flyovers. Those who wish to receive handouts, count forms, rare bird forms and
maps should plan on meeting in the
parking lot of Home Depot
located at 2201
Lakeview Parkway (by Highway 66) Rowlett, Texas at
6:30 AM (coordinates 32.9090,-98.5813).
We can see if we'll be short or need to group more participants. Please plan on
meeting at the end of the Count at 5:30 PM
at Siciliano's Taste of Italy at 2210 W. Buckingham Road in Garland for
our official tally and dinner (optional). We're looking forward to the Count
since it had been a big success in the last couple of years. For further details
phone Peter at
214-986-7048 or email him at

Society for Spring Creek Forest.
