The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is heading into its 117th 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.
