CBC Data Entry: Carpinteria Birdwatchers meeting for December 3

Tuesday, December 1st, 2020

Our next Carpinteria Birdwatchers meeting will be another quick meeting to prepare for the upcoming Carpinteria Christmas Bird Count (CBC). In this meeting we’ll go over how to use eBird to share your sightings, as well as how to fill out the CBC “effort form” and how to use the day-of spreadsheet on count day. The CBC will take place on Saturday, December 19, 2020; the meeting to prepare for it will be on Thursday, December 3 at 4 p.m.

I hope to see you there!
