The date for the 2021 Bonners Ferry Christmas Bird Count is Thursday, December 23 this year and all local ornithologists, bird watchers skilled or amateur and folk with feeders or who just plain like to see birds skitter across the sky are invited to take part.

Those interested will meet at 6:30 a.m. that day in the back room at the Chic-N-Chop Restaurant, 6421 Main Street, Bonners Ferry. The time is a change from years past, as sunrise is at 7:38 a.m. Be a little early if you plan to enjoy breakfast.

Afterwards, folks will fan out to count all the feathered friends they spy in an area encompassed by a large circle centered on Bonners Ferry, be they in the woods, hills swales or backyard.

Participants are asked to RSVP to, and you can also email with any questions.
