2021 Christmas Bird Count
Join us for the 2021 Christmas Bird Count on Sunday, December 26. The count is the longest continuous census in the new world. The count stretches from the high Arctic to South America. By volunteering for this event you are helping scientists determine the long-term population trends for birds in our area.
This annual event includes teams of birders surveying eleven sections within a prescribed 15-mile diameter circle, the center of which is the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove. Because this is at the holiday season and many people travel, we can be short of volunteers for the count. If you are in town for the holiday and want to help, please contact Vince Smith (484-410-1157, email@example.com) by December 17 to be assigned to a team. Beginning birders are welcome and will be assigned to a team with experienced members.
