2014 Christmas Bird Count, from Michael Good at Downeast Nature Tours

Hello everyone,
November is here already and time to start thinking about this years Christmas Bird Count.  I am being pro-active again this year because I will be leading another Cuban Bird Survey   from December 1-14.  You will not hear from me until I get back on Sunday December 14 so it would be good for me to have an understanding about who will be here and the area you’ll cover.  
This years CBC is on Saturday December 20.   I would like to ask everyone to join in our efforts again this year. Those of you who have participated for many years know your locations and I trust that everyone will be participating again. 
For those of you that have not been involved, the MDI CBC  could really use your help. If you could contact me I will assign  you a location to bird. As of today,  I do not know who would like to cover Sand beach to Otter Cove and Blackwoods.  Bass Harbor folks should contact me as well. 
I am also hoping that the Seal Cove group has enough people and if not,  I will find someone to help. Perhaps Rich McDonald can help you with this substantial section of MDI.
I am reaching out to everyone so that we can maximize the talent we have.   It would be helpful if you contacted me, especially if you will not be participating.  
Thank you very much and I can’t wait for this years CBC.
