ASCA does not conduct a field trip during the month of December. Instead, all birders are encouraged to participate in the Little Rock and Lonoke Christmas Bird Counts (CBCs). ASCA sponsors both counts. The Little Rock CBC is Saturday, December 16, 2017. The Lonoke CBC is the next Sunday, December 17, 2017. Dr. Dan Scheiman coordinates and compiles both counts. For more information and to participate in a count, contact Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org or (501) 244-2229. For general information about CBCs, go to www.audubon.org/bird/cbc/index.html.
