Backyard Bird Count & Wild Wings

great backyard bird count 2011

So it is official, Sandra and Mike Grey made announced that they will close Wild Wings Unlimited. The business has been a long time Big Bear birder favorite.

The rumors of the closure actually began some time back, but the recent news is that the business will shut its doors following a month long sale in March.

As for the two business owners, they will officially retire in May of 2011. Sadly Wild Wings Unlimited is the only remaining full-time retail store in the Moonridge business district (42656 Moonridge Road in Big Bear Lake).

Many mountain businesses are pondering what to do after the economic nightmare of the past couple of years.

Additional challenges are being faced after the recent Highway 330 closure (due to a complete collapse of the roadway) since the highway is not anticipated to open until later this year (if things go as planned).

The Wild Wings Unlimited sale will include discounts on all feeders, birdhouses, birdbaths, binoculars, and gift items (at a 20 percent reduction to start). All sales will be final.

The bird supply announcement was made just prior to the annual Great Backyard Bird Count which will take place this Friday, February 18, 2011 through Monday, February 21, 2011.

The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is an annual event that involves bird watchers of all ages. People across the nation take time to count birds to help identify what species of birds can be found across the continent.

Bird watchers  of all levels, from beginning to experts, are invited to participate. The count commitment can involve as little as 15 minutes or participants can participate daily for as long as they want until the event ends.

I usually participate but since I am currently off the mountain I won’t be doing the count this year. However, I encourage you to take a moment to visit the offical website to learn how to participate in the GBBC.
