Karl Ruprecht has been heading up the South Hills survey since 2008, so this will be our 16th census (we’ve missed a year due to nasty weather)!!


The weather this year will hopefully cooperate so that we can spend an entire day (or more if you owl the night before) in the South Hills searching out and counting birds. The odds of seeing something different from what you’ve been seeing at your feeder are very high. At this time of year in the South Hills there are more than 175 regularly occurring species possibilities, including the Idaho endemic Cassia Crossbill! 194 species have been tallied altogether over the years.


Please give Karl a call and he will put you on a team. He tries his best to put novice birders with “experts” and to accommodate your wishes as to where, and for how long, you would like to bird.


We finish the day with a simple potluck at the Ruprecht cabin in the South Hills. Everyone is invited, even those who did not bird. Plan to bring your own drinks, dinner-ware, and something to share that can stay in a cooler in a car all day long (salad, dessert, veges, fruit, etc.). Audubon will provide fried chicken (a perennial birder’s favorite!).


Call Karl for more information and to RSVP if you plan to bird or if you plan to attend the potluck picnic. He will provide directions to the Ruprecht cabin and set you up with a team.
