Regular readers here know of my dedication to all things related to birds and Queens, the best borough in New York City. The Queens Christmas Bird Count is coming up in six days, on Sunday, 19 December, and we need more birders! If you are interested in joining in please contact Ian Resnick, the Queens CBC compiler, at (718) 631-9643.
