Christmas Bird Count
Saturday, December 17, 2022
Hosted by the Eastside Audubon Society.
The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is the longest running community science survey in North America. Eastside Audubon has coordinated the CBC since 1983! You can do a Feederwatch at home or Join a Field Team. Every year volunteers survey the count circle (15 miles in diameter) centered in the Eastside, to identify and count anything with feathers. There are 15 sections within the our count circle, each being covered by one or multiple field teams of volunteer surveyors. Count birds on your own or as part of an Eastside Audubon field team from early morning through late afternoon, then join us for an online gathering to review the day from 6:00-7:00 p.m.
All results are tallied by a count compiler and submitted to the National Audubon Society. The valuable data gathered on wintering bird populations will support important research like the 3 Billion Birds report and other scientific publications. We report the key findings from the Eastside Audubon count in our newsletter, The Corvid Crier.
