Members of Cheyenne Audubon invite anyone interested in birds to join them for the Cheyenne Big Day Bird Count May 20. The count begins at 6:30 a.m. at Lions Park in the parking lot off South Lions Park Drive between the Children’s Village and the picnic shelter/restroom.

People joining the count later can call count compiler Grant Frost, 307-343-2024, to find out if the group is still at Lions Park or has moved on to the Wyoming Hereford Ranch or the High Plains Arboretum. The large group will bird until early afternoon, though individual birdwatchers can leave at any time and continue to bird on their own within the 7.5-mile-radius circle measured from the Capitol building.

Please call Grant Frost, 307-343-2024, to report birds seen on your own or to find out how to attend the tally party the evening of May 21.
