Until 2014, Dwight and Ann Chasar were primarily responsible for coordinating the census with assistance from others; starting in 2014 Doug and Michelle Vogus have assumed this responsibility. Thank you Dwight and Ann for your years of service!
This last year (2017) the census was held from June 16 through June 25. Birders had this 10 day period to observe and count the birds in their assigned territories. If you are interested in participating in the future, please contact Doug Vogus using the information given below.
The long term benefit of this activity is a record of how the distribution of species and counts within species changes over the years. This data is of importance to biologists and environmentalists who wish to monitor the changes that occur on a regional or national level, not just a local level.
Any birder who wants more information please contact Doug at 330-352-2355 (e-mail email@example.com).
