Pacific Gas and Electric Co. announced that Lake Almanor and Bucks Lake water levels are projected to be below normal this summer due to drought conditions.

Students at Chester High got one more thing to tweet about last Thursday — tweeters. The students participated in the inaugural Student Bird Count sponsored by the Plumas Audubon Society and Rob Wade.

In addition to the Chester bird count, one for Portola students is scheduled for later this spring. The count at Portola High School is set for June 6, starting at 8 a.m. and ending at noon.

Plumas County residents have participated in National Audubon's annual Christmas Bird Count held every December and Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Great Backyard Bird Count held every February.
