The First Summer Bird Count

Published in 1964

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.
