What is the Christmas Bird Count?

The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is a long-standing program of the National Audubon Society, with over 100 years of community science involvement. It is an early-winter
bird census, where thousands of volunteers across the U.S., Canada, and many countries in the Western Hemisphere go out over a 24-hour period on one calendar day to count birds. A map view of the circles expected to be included in the 119th CBC can be found here: https://audubon.maps.arcgis.com/apps/View/ index.html?appid=fadfb421e95f4949bde20c29a38228bd

If you’re interested in participating next season, check out the map to find a count near you; more circles will be added as they are approved. Green and yellow circles are open for new participants, and red circles are full. Please contact compilers by email using the information from the pop-ups on the map.
