Audubon Christmas Bird Counts
December 19, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
General Info: Participants follow a specified rout contained within a 15-mile diameter circle, centered on a key area. Birders count all birds they see and hear, not just compiling a species list but a census of all birds detected. Each Christmas Bird Count is done in one full day between December 15 and January 5. These bird counts enable biologists to monitor trends in distribution and diversity across the United States.
All levels of birders are welcome. Bring warm clothes, hiking shoes, lunch, bird books and binoculars. You will be assigned an area and spend the day counting birds in this area.
