The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is heading into its 118th year of existence. Sponsored by the National Audubon Society, individuals take part in a full day of counting the number of birds observed on a set route. To get involved with a CBC circle in your area, please reach out to the Point of Contact / Compiler for the count circle. In order to do this, please see the Audubon CBC Website, and zoom in to your desired circle. Clicking the circle will provide you the email address of the compiler.

Please note that all Count Circle information displayed in italics is still referencing the 2016-17 CBC information. We will update this listing as information is passed on to us by Count Circle Point(s) of Contact!

Where Point(s) of Contact have given approval to list email addresses here on our website, please note that you will need to replace the "_at_" portion of the address with the typical "@" when actually emailing the Point of Contact. This is done intentionally to avoid 3rd party spammers, which often times seek out email listings like this table by searching website for the "@" symbol.
