Devoted birders and novices converge on the Florida Scrub-Jay Trailhouse at 5:30 a.m. for a light breakfast, and receive maps of their assigned territory, a section of a fifteen-mile circle surrounding Clermont.

After breakfast and briefings, the teams head out to their assigned territories to document their sightings. At the end of the day, all reconvene at the Florida Scrub-Jay Trail to report their sightings.

All levels of experience are accepted as we pair you with experienced birders. If you can see the birds and can count, you are needed. If you canít participate in the official count, we encourage parents and children to go outside and experience nature, South Lake County style.

For more information or to register, contact John Thomton, Founder and Organizer of the Clermont Christmas Bird Count, at  john.thomton@gmail.com
