We are all delighted to bear witness to a Christmas tradition that doesn’t involve hacking and slashing of defenceless birds or cob rollers. Starting on the 19th of December, Churchville organizes annual bird count, and the center expects quite a crowd set on stretching their legs in the bird walk event.
Each year, just before Christmas, the authorities of Northhampton have made quite a tradition out of organizing bird watching events with the courtesy of the Churchville Nature Center. According to the organizer, the event is going to start on the 19th of December and will end in late February.
As to the bird watch itself, Nature lovers and bird enthusiasts are expected each Sunday, from 8 to 10 a.m at the Churchville Nature Science. From there they will be taken on of the nest area. The groups will also be accompanied by a senior bird watcher, a specialist who will be able to answer any question regarding what species of birds can be found in a specific area.
Per request, the senior guide will also point out the best spots for watching the many species of birds which inhabit the surrounding area. Novice bird watchers are expected to attend the event. If you are indeed a bird watching aficionado, be sure to bring along a pair of binoculars and a guide detailing the species of birds found in the vicinity of the Nature Center.
As the event draws near, the management posted an update regarding certain details of the meeting. If you are indeed a senior or a junior bird watcher then you are requested to reconvene at Nature’s Center parking lot, with the rest of the bird watchers.
Churchville organizes annual bird count, but the event itself is not meant solely for the public’s delectation. During the bird walk, the specialists are able to take a precise count of the birds to see how they’ve fared from year to year.
For those of you who wish to participate in this event, the Churchville is located at the following address: 501 Churchville Lane.
