Help birds: Join the Christmas Bird Count

This annual tradition provides invaluable scientific data.

For over a hundred years, the Audubon Society has conducted an annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) to create a snapshot of bird numbers and distribution throughout America. The "Christmas" in Christmas Bird Count is something of a misnomer; the count takes place between December 14 and January 5, based on the scheduling of each area's locations.
