The Riverside Nature Center, in Animas Park off Browning Parkway, will be part of this nationwide project which is an opportunity for volunteers to aid in scientific research which has been carried out for over 100 years.  From 8:00am to 3:00pm, spend part or all of the day with other birders counting all the birds, common or rare, abundant or scarce, in their wintering grounds in the Farmington area.  The statistics are used nationwide to follow changes and trends in bird populations. The area of Berg and Animas Parks has been included for over 30 years. Groups will be walking the parks, and others will be observing feeders from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Beginner and experienced birders are all able to help.
