WIND CAVE NATIONAL PARK, SD -
Bird enthusiasts across the state are invited to bundle up and take part in Wind Cave National Park's Christmas bird count on Sunday.
The all-day event is patterned after the National Audubon Society's effort to document trends in wintering birdlife throughout the United States. The count area will include Wind Cave National Park and areas of the Black Hills National Forest and Custer State Park.
People wanting to take part should meet at the park visitor center at 8 a.m. Park officials say visitors should dress warmly and bring a lunch, field guides, binoculars and something to share for a potluck dinner.
