In 1963, Mr. Thomas Z. Atkeson proposed that the Society should undertake an annual summer bird count. Follow1ng several d1scussions in meetings of the Society it was decided that such a count would be undertaken in the summer of 1964, any time during the month of June. Any local group that wanted to make such a count would procede with it, using the same area and methods employed in the Christmas Count. Only 2 summer counts were made, but the results were of sufficient interest that it can be hoped that more counts will be made in the future.
