ECBC History Compilation
The 75-year history of the Eugene Christmas Bird Count (ECBC) is now available on the LCAS website for downloading. Herb Wisner, long-time compiler for the ECBC, has researched piles of old documents and has written an interesting and humorous synopsis of our long-running CBC. Past participants will enjoy reading his article and may be able to answer a few questions he raises. Herb is still researching old records and plans to add more historical information on this topic in future months.
