The 30th Annual Southwest Morris Winter Bird Count will occur on January 19, 2014. Founded by Dave Harrison, the structure of the count is similar to a Christmas Bird Count but that is where the resemblance ends. This is not a CBC but a true winter survey of birds. The area covered centers around Chester, NJ. Morris County is the main focus but areas of Hunterdon, Sussex and Warren are also included in the count area. A species list through 2012 is here.
All are welcome to participate. If you are interested, please email Dave Harrison at
