See also

It’s that time of year and the PGC is reaching out to the public for participation in the Audubon Society’s 114th Annual Christmas Bird Count, which will run through Jan. 5. The Annual Christmas Bird Count is the longest running citizen survey in the world, with thousands of volunteers participating across the US.

Data collected through the annual bird count is a priceless resource for researchers and conservation biologists, as it contributes to the study of the long-term health and status of bird populations across North America. Although there is a specific methodology for the Christmas Bird Count, volunteering is simple and participants can chose the most convenient circles to collect data.

The count takes place within “Count Circles,” which focus on specific geographical areas. Those who live within the boundaries of a Count Circle can even stay at home and report the birds that visit their backyard feeders. Participation is free and for those wishing to contribute time to the count, visit the Audubon website.
