National Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Count (CBC)
December 14 @ 12:00 am – January 5 @ 11:59 pm
The National Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Count is an early-winter bird census, in which 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,
CBC is a fantastic way to introduce your kids to the excitement of birding, citizen science and hopefully set them off on a lifelong hobby. No experience birding? No worries. Beginning birders can join a group with at least one experienced birdwatcher.
Check out the CBC map to contact the volunteer organizing the count in your area. But act fast because the 120th Christmas Bird Count will be conducted between the dates of Saturday, December 14, 2019, through Sunday, January 5, 2020.
