Join tens of thousands of volunteers across the country in shaping conservation and Congressional decisions during the longest-running citizen science wildlife survey in the world!
The Christmas Bird Count is held every year over the winter holiday season. The data collected by observers during this annual bird count allows researchers, conservation biologists, and interested individuals to study the long-term health and status of bird populations across North America. Led by experienced Audubon birders, participants will follow specified routes through a designated 15-mile diameter circle, counting every bird they see or hear all day. Results will then be sent to the National Audubon Society, where they will be compiled and posted online at www.audubon.org in January.
We will hold our 2016 Christmas Bird Count on December 30th, 2016. For more information, including how to get involved please email volunteer coordinator Ann Huey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
