The annual bird count in Fayette County is coming December 17th.

Brigitte Hisey of the Fayette County Soil & Water Conservation District says the 114-year-old annual practice in recent years has resulted in the count of over 40 bird species in the county.

In a related note, the district is conducting a Farmers Breakfast Monday at the Fayette County Ag Center at 7:30am. Soil scientist Steve Baker will be a speaker talking on soil health and crop production. Call their office today (Friday) for a reservation.
