Main Content


The annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) enlists thousands of volunteers across the western hemisphere to count every bird they see and hear on a given day. For more than a century, the CBC has provided invaluable community science data that helps ornithologists identify long-term trends, migration patterns, and overall sustainability in bird populations. It’s an annual winter tradition for hundreds of Audubon chapters and organizations. Please contact the coordinator in your desired area for more detailed information, if you would like to help out.
