Join us for the 119th Christmas Bird Count, held Friday, December 14, 2018 through Saturday, January 5, 2019. Since the Christmas Bird Count began over a century ago, it has relied on the dedication and commitment of volunteers. Each November, birders interesting in participating in the CBC can sign up and join in through the Audubon website. From December 14 through January 5 each year tens of thousands of volunteers throughout the Americas brave snow, wind, or rain, and take part in the effort. Audubon and other organizations use data collected in this long-running wildlife census to assess the health of bird populations, and to help guide conservation action.
