I am assuming all regional (local) leaders will be doing the Bigfork CBC once again. If you were a regional (local) leader last year, and are not participating in the Bigfork CBC this year, please let me know. I will be sending out the Bigfork CBC packets with bird checklists and maps of your respective sub-regions in the first week of December. If there are multiple people in your regions, you can organize your plan of coverage, or just caravan. All volunteers are welcome, I will meet any interested birders in the parking lot at 8 AM at Flathead Lake Brewery on Saturday, December 17th, 2022 (day of Bigfork CBC).

Meeting after the count is yet to be determined; please return your packets with the map and bird checklists ASAP. You can either return them by mail (asap), email them to me (but return the maps), or drop the bird lists in my mailbox on Riverside Rd. (95 Hash Mtn. View,); it is about 1 mile south of Creston on Riverside Rd. on the corner of Obryan Lane.

Good birding,
