Floyd Wolfarth, an historical figure in New Jersey birding and a co-founder of the Urner Ornithological Club, was instrumental in founding the Boonton Christmas Bird Count (CBC) in 1936. The Urner Club has sponsored the event ever since. December 23, 2012 marks the 77th consecutive year of this count.

As the compiler of the Boonton CBC commencing this year, I extend an invitation to everyone to take part in the Boonton CBC in any way that you can. Whether it is a feeder watch within the count area, an hour or two spent working an area, a morning or a full day, any contribution to this valuable endeavor is of great importance and warmly appreciated.
