Audubon’s 117th Christmas Bird Count will take place this fall/winter between the inclusive dates of Wednesday, December 14th, 2016through Thursday, January 5th, 2017.
The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is a long-standing program of the National Audubon Society, with over 100 years of citizen science involvement. It is an early-winter bird census, where thousands of volunteers across the US, Canada and many countries in the Western Hemisphere, go out over a 24 hour period on one calendar day to count birds. Since the Christmas Bird count began over a century ago, it has relied on the dedication and commitment of volunteers like you. From beginner birder to advanced, everyone can participate!
