This week on Dialogue, reporter Steve Kotchko interviews Jay Kaplan, director of the Roaring Brook Nature Center in Canton, about the annual Christmas Bird Count, taking place this month across Connecticut, as well as much of the rest of North America, and parts of Central America.  Kaplan talks about the history of the Count, now in its 118th year.  He discusses how the Count is conducted, and why this example of “citizen science” is important to the environment.
