Chr tmas Bird Count comes to NN The Inaugural Northumber- land-Lancaster Christmas Bird Count will be on the morning of Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2016. The event takes place at various locations in Northumberland and Lancaster Counties. A dozen or more teams of birders will cover many areas of the two counties to identify birds and count their numbers. This premier birding and citizen science event is sponsored by the Northern Neck Audubon Society. The event is open to birders of all skill levels. The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is a long-standing pro- gram of the National Audubon Society, with over 100 years of cit- izen science involvement. It is an early-winter bird census, where thousands of volunteers across the US, Canada and many coun- tries in the Western Hemisphere, go out on one calendar day be- tween 14 December and 5 Janu- ary each year to count birds. They have a long standing tradition in the Commonwealth but not on the Eastern End of the Northern Neck. Each count takes place in an established 15-mile wide diam- eter circle, and is organized by a count compiler. Count volunteers follow specified routes through a designated 15-mile (24-km) di- ameter circle, counting every bird they see or hear all day. It's not just a species tally--all birds are counted all day, giving an indica- tion of the total number of birds in the circle that day. There is a specific methodology to the CBC, and all participants must make arrangements to participate in ad- vance with the circle count com- piler within an established circle, but anyone can participate. To participate contact Jeff Wright at 703-801-0239. He is the compiler for the Northum- berland-Lancaster event and is responsible for assignments to the many teams participating in the Christmas Bird Count. _--- SALEM BAPTIST CHURCH will celebrate its Appreciation Day Service for Rev.

PAUL'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH will present the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at 6 pm on Sunday, December 18 in the historic church, festooned with Christmas florals at 5486 St. Paul's Road. The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols dates back to the 19th Century and is celebrated around the world. Through per- tinent readings from both the Old Testament and New Testament, interspersed with beautiful music, the service allows the congregants to reflect on the birth of Jesus. The first Festival of Nine Les- sons and Carols was held at Kings College, Cambridge, England on Christmas Eve in 1918. It was introduced by Milner-White, the Dean of the College, whose expe- rience, as an Army Chaplain, had lead him to believe that more cre- ative forms of worship was needed by the Church of England. By a strange coincidence, the new Rec- tor of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, is also a Retired Army Chaplain from Oxfordshire, England, and will be leading the services. He also believes that the Episcopal Church needs more creative forms of worship in order to reach out to the entire community.
