The Baldwin Bird Club conducted its 67th annual Christmas Bird Count, sponsored by the National Audubon Society, on Dec. 14. The Christmas Bird Count was established in 1900 as an alternative to the traditional Christmas Day Hunt. This was a tradition where people would go out to see how many different birds an individual could shoot in a day.
