The Medford Christmas Bird Count takes place Saturday, Dec. 30. This count encompasses Medford, Central Point, White City and Eagle Point. Birding hotspots such as Whetstone Savanna Preserve, Table Rocks, Agate Lake, Denman Wildlife Area, Prescott Park, and the Bear Creek Greenway area are all included in this section!
The area for the Medford count is a circle 15 miles in diameter, centered approximately a mile west of the junction of Highway 140 and Highway 62 in White City. The circle is divided into 15 sections with teams of birders, each with an experienced leader, counting birds in each section.All birders are welcome to participate, and newcomers will be assigned to a group by the Medford count coordinator.Those who live in the count circle and have bird feeders can do a feeder watch and add their sightings to the count. CBC feeder watch instructions and a tally sheet can be obtained by emailing Medford Christmas Bird Count Coordinator Rebekah Bergkoetter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
