Cayuga Bird Club Members Participate in the 2021 Christmas Bird Count

Members of the local Cayuga Bird Club started out the New Year in an energetic and optimistic fashion by participating in a long-standing local tradition, the annual Christmas Bird count. This citizen science project is sponsored by Audubon.
WRFI News Contributor Esther Racoosin speaks with Paul Anderson, past President of the Cayuga Bird Club, about how this year's event was altered due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We also hear from volunteer area leaders Lynn Leopold and Colleen Richards about their experiences during this year's bird count.
