Christmas Bird Count

December 19 

Our local Christmas Bird Count was held on December 19.  Check this site in the coming weeks for results.  In the meantime, check out the numbers from our December 2020 count, when European Starlings topped our lists, at 2,171 individual birds!

The National Audubon Society conducted the first Christmas Bird Count in 1900, making it the Western Hemisphere’s longest-running wildlife census and one of the world’s greatest ongoing citizen-science efforts. Scientists use the data gathered to help track trends in bird populations and address conservation issues.
