Christmas Bird Count
December 31, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join the nation’s longest running citizen science bird project by participating in the 118th Christmas Bird Count! It’s fun and easy and helps scientists understand what’s going on with our birds!
The data collected by observers over the past century allow Audubon researchers, conservation biologists, wildlife agencies and other interested individuals to study the long-term health and status of bird populations across North America. When combined with other surveys such as the Breeding Bird Survey, it provides a picture of how the continent’s bird populations have changed in time and space over the past hundred years.
The long term perspective is vital for conservationists. It informs strategies to protect birds and their habitat, and helps identify environmental issues with implications for people as well.
