Help Count Birds for Science during Audubon’s 123rd Annual Christmas Bird Count

Thousands of participants will be part of the world’s longest-running wildlife census, which contributes invaluable data to bird population research.

The National Audubon Society invites birdwatchers to participate in the longest-running community science survey, the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC). On Saturday, December 17, birders and nature enthusiasts around the Eagle Valley will take part in this tradition, hosted by Walking Mountains Science Center. This year, the Audubon Christmas Bird Count will mobilize nearly 80,000 volunteer bird counters in more than 2,600 locations across the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America. The Audubon Christmas Bird Count utilizes the power of volunteers to track the health of bird populations at a scale that scientists could never accomplish alone. Data compiled in our count will record every individual bird and bird species seen in two geographic circles around Eagle and Dotsero, contributing to a vast community science network that continues a tradition stretching back 123 years.
