Birding club to hold Christmas bird count


Every December since 1990, the Lakes Area Birding Club has conducted a Detroit Lakes Christmas Bird Count.

This year’s event is set to take place on Saturday, Dec. 14, and runs “from midnight to midnight,” said organizer Nancy Henke.

“Our area is a circle, 15 miles in diameter, within a 7 ½-mile radius of Detroit Lakes,” she added.

The count area is divided into four different zones, with groups of volunteers going out in cars to cover each of the zones.
