December 19, 2015 Our count this year will begin at 7:30 AM at the West Coon Rapids Dam at 10360 West River Road, Brooklyn Park, MN 55444. Three Rivers Park District will be opening the West Coon Rapids Dam for our use. Beginning birders will be grouped with experienced birders. Groups will be given specific areas within the 15 mile count circle to observe and count on foot and in cars. We will return to the visitor center at noon for a hot pot luck lunch, then return to our count areas. We will all return to the visitor center between 3:30 and 4:00 to tally birds counted and fill report sheets out. Last year we had 35 participants, counted 5,847 birds with 41 species.
Please note the meeting place is not at Springbrook Nature Center this year due to construction there. Also note there is no stove or oven at the Coon Rapids Dam, so bring a crockpot or other warming device for your warm dish.
