Folks,

We will hold the 2013 Klickitat County Fall North American Migration Count on Saturday, September 21st. Please let me know if you are interested in helping. We have a variety of habitats in Klickitat County, from the Douglas Fir subalpine forests near Trout Lake and Mt Adams, to the sage steppe at the western edge of the Columbia Basin, and in between, a beautiful Oak-Pine woodland habitat.

Over the past 14 Fall counts ( http://birdingwashington.info/Klickitat/FallNAMC.htm ), we have averaged 127 count day species with the help of 21 observers. During the Spring counts, as shown below, the same average number of observers ( 21) have observed on average 155 species, or almost 25% more species.

Thanks to Randy Robinson for compiling this data and thanks also to the participants, of varying skill levels, who have helped us capture this snapshot of Klickitat County bird life over these years.

If you have any interest in helping, or in starting such counts in your county, please let me know. Recruiting observers is an ongoing, year around activity.

Happy Birding,
Bob Hansen
