Bates Hole Bird Count

January 1, 2020

Free

The Bates Hole Christmas Bird Count will be Wednesday, January 1, 2020. This count is one of the only rural counts in the country. The first count was in 1978 and the circle is centered southeast of the Two-Bar Headquarters. For those interested in owling, we usually find quite a few Great-Horned Owls, and occasionally Saw-whet or Eastern Screech Owls. We will meet at Charlie Scott’s house on the Two-Bar at 7:30 AM to split into the different parties. We will meet back at Charlie’s about noon, so it is easy to do a half day if you would like. Usually the weather is horrible in Casper with strong southwest winds and clouds, but Bates Hole will be calm and sunny. Come out for some pleasant winter birding and a great way to start the New Year. We will finish with supper at the Two-Bar and compile the results. For more information, call Charlie Scott at 473-2512 or Stacey Scott at 262-0055.
