CHRISTMAS COUNT FEES There will be a participation fee of $1 for every count participant, including feeder watchers. This fee is not optional. All observers taking part in a count must be accounted for, their fees paid, and their names listed on participant sheets. The fees are essential to the continuation of the Count, with its costly organizing, mailings, editing, and giant (488pg.) publication. This year there will be no extra fee for non-subscribers to American Birds, and no copies of the Christmas Bird Count issue of American Birds will be sent automatically to non-subscribers/participants, as previously. However, present non-subscribers may order a copy of this issue, at the reduced rate of $3.50 (regular price $4.50), per copy, by making payment to the compiler or count treasurer with the CBC participation fee (total of $4.50).
