Matador WMA Christmas Bird Count 12/22/2018

I know its short notice, but I thought I would send a note about the Christmas Bird Count at Matador Wildlife Management Area on Saturday December 22nd. Matador WMA is located between Childress and Paducah in Cottle County just west of Highway 62 on County Road 3256.

We will meet at the office at 7 am on the 22nd to go over birding locations. There is usually only the staff and a few volunteers (about 10 folks total on a good day) to cover the WMA's 28k acres. I will be in that area and am going to pitch in, partly to try to get pics of one of the Short-eared Owls that winter there and partly because I look for any reason to go there. They are also hoping to document Chestnut-collared Longspurs on the WMA as they have been seen in the County in the recent past.

As the initial meeting is early in the morning, Paducah is about 10 miles south and has a single small hotel (converted old funeral parlor... not making that up) and Childress is about 28 miles north and on 287, they have several hotel/motels of the recognizable national brands.

The week appears to be mild and dry, so I'm sure there will be observations to be made other than birds. As mentioned, I know it's short notice especially with the holiday, but maybe the families have come in early and some of you are looking for an excuse to escape for a day... Ha!

If anyone has any questions, let me know and I will get some answers. Copy anyone that you may think would be interested.
