ABOUT THE CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT

Excerpted from the National Audubon Society's Christmas  Bird Count Website.

From December 14, 2020 through January 5, 2021, tens of thousands of volunteers throughout the Americas will take part in an adventure that has become a family tradition among generations. This will be the 121st count!  Families and students, birders and scientists, armed with binoculars, bird guides and checklists go out on an annual mission - often before dawn. For more than a century, the desire to both make a difference and to experience the beauty of nature has driven dedicated people to leave the comfort of a warm house during the Holiday season.

Each of the citizen scientists who annually braves snow, wind, or rain, to take part in the Christmas Bird Count makes an enormous contribution to conservation. Audubon and other organizations use data collected in this longest-running wildlife census to assess the health of bird populations - and to help guide conservation action.
