Assistance with Bear Lake Valley (IDBL) Christmas Bird Count

Micah Austin

Idaho Birders,

Greetings!  My dad and I have managed the Bear Lake Valley CBC (IDBL) for many years.  We've slowly lost our support over the years (folks are getting older) and we need a little help covering one area this year.  The area we need help with includes the town of Ovid, Idaho and has varied habitats (ag lands, riparian, residential, forest).  Most roads will be snow packed and this part of the state is sparsely populated with Montpelier as the largest city within the CBC circle.  This CBC also includes parts of Bear Lake, several small towns with fascinating histories, and comes close to the border of Wyoming. 

The Bear Lake Valley CBC will be on Wednesday, January 4.  If you are interested and are able to help, please contact me directly at 208-721-0884 by phone or text.  I will give you the details and more information on this CBC and how you can help.  Thank you!
