Christmas Bird Count

Date: December 23, 2012

The 113th Audubon Christmas Bird Counts are about to begin!  Join other bird enthusiasts in counting the birds in your area.

There is a specific methodology to the CBC, but everyone can participate. The count takes place within “Count Circles,” which focus on specific geographical areas and each circle is led by a Count Compiler. 

If you are a beginning birder, you will be able to join a group that includes at least one experienced birdwatcher. In addition, if your home is within the boundaries of a Count Circle, then you can stay home and report the birds that visit your feeder once you have arranged to do so with the Count Compiler. 

After a day outside we gather at Procolino’s Pizza in Kent Plaza to tally up what we have all seen and share the day’s highlights.   

Get in touch to learn more about how to participate in this decades long citizen science program!
