Volunteers sought for Christmas Bird Count

Share this story:


One of the most threatened species of all is the Florida Scrub-Jay. You can only find them in Florida, but with loss of habitat and predators as common as pet cats, the Florida Scrub-Jay is becoming more and more uncommon. Only 10 were counted in the 2016 Venice/Englewood Christmas Bird Count.

It’s an annual tradition called the Christmas Bird Count, conducted locally through the Venice Area Audubon Society.
