Anza Borrego CBC Potluck December 16

2:04 pm


Are you participating in this year’s Borrego Springs Christmas Bird Count on Sunday, December 17? 

To sign up to participate in the count, email shannon.mcneil@… at Anza Borrego Desert State Park. 

If you plan to participate  (and we hope you do) then you (and a significant other or birding companion) are cordially invited to join other CBC participants Saturday evening, December 16, for the ANZA BORREGO CBC POTLUCK FIESTA at the home of Terry Hunefeld & Ann Dunham in Borrego Springs from 5:30 – 8:00 pm. 


Borrego residents are asked to bring a hot dish or salad.  If you’re coming from “the other side of the mountains” bring something tasty that will travel… cheese & crackers, hummus, tortilla chips & salsa, quiche, Julian pie, wine, cookies. You name it, this bunch of birders will eat or drink it — the theme is  CBC FIESTA!  All extra food will be transported to UCI Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center on Tilting T for the next day’s lunch and compilation meeting where the teams report their findings.


Important: Be sure to RSVP to Terry at thunefeld@… for the Potluck Fiesta no later than December 6.  If you RSVP, I will  confirm within 24 hours and email you the address, driving directions and parking tips.  We live in Rams Hill Country Club.


We’ll supply china and cutlery along with Ann’s Famous Seafood Chowder plus her secret-recipe holiday “feel-good” champagne punch, sparkling & filtered water, tea and coffee.   Feel free to bring your own “other” beverages and keep them cold in the big fridge in the garage.


Come when you can.  Many of you are driving from the coast after the San Diego CBC and may arrive after 5:30… don’t worry, we’ll leave the lights on for you.
