Christmas Bird Count with Wyncote Audubon Society
Join us for the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC): the nation's longest-running community science bird project. The Christmas Bird Count began in 1900 as a way of promoting conservation by counting, rather than hunting, birds on Christmas Day and has continued annually in over twenty countries in the western hemisphere. Birders of all skillsets are welcome to join us for the CBC to an effort to collect data that has been used in hundreds of analyses, peer-reviewed publications, and government reports over the decades.
The Count will take place in the Bird Observatory. Participants are not required to stay for the full length of time. Please bring binoculars and dress for the weather. Hot chocolate will be provided.
