Thank you for helping to protect America's birds, wildlife, and their habitat.
Spending a winter’s day with friends and family counting
birds on Audubon’s Christmas Bird Count (CBC) not only provides crucial
conservation information for the nation’s longest-running citizen science
project, it also binds us to our community and local birding spots.
Since 1900, the Christmas Bird Count has been helping
Audubon and other conservationists learn more about birds and about what we can
do to help protect them. Birders from coast to coast help us not only
track critical bird population trends, but keep our finger on the pulse of the
natural world around us.
Audubon engages people in natural places around them to
conserve and restore natural ecosystems. Citizen Science and citizen action are
some of the tools we use, and the Christmas Bird Count is our leading Citizen
Science activity. Please help us support this valuable program!
In December 2012, Audubon removed the mandatory
participation fee and replaced it with a voluntary donation system. Your
donations are more important than ever to maintain the count, tell you about
the results, and to take conservation action.
