 THURSDAY DECEMBER 27 - All Day - Monterey Peninsula Christmas Bird Count
Every year between 40 and 100 birders of all experience levels spread out over the Monterey Peninsula to tally every individual bird and every species of bird they can. We usually record between 170 - 190 species, from the waters off Cypress Point in the west, to the oak grasslands of Corral de Tierra in the east. Annual rarities discovered during count day always provide a lot of excitement. In enquire or request a territory assignment please contact Rita Carratello at merops22@gmail.com
