The Northampton (MANO) Christmas Bird Count is scheduled for Sunday, December 20th. It will be a challenge this year due to Covid-19 restrictions, and we’re in need of more help with the count. Even if you haven’t participated before, we hope you’ll consider taking part in the largest citizen-science project ever… and have fun doing it! CLICK HERE for more information. If you would like to participate in the count this year, let us know by emailing [email protected].
The Board of Directors of the Hampshire Bird Club want all people who bird with us to feel warmly welcomed, included, and safe. Like many, we are deeply disturbed and saddened by the racial harassment of a Black birder in Central Park, NYC; the horrific death of George Floyd in Minneapolis; and the persistent racism that afflicts our society. Birdwatching is a joyful activity that can bring people together across all differences. We commit to supporting efforts that increase diversity in birding and, indeed, within our own club.
