Big May Day Bird Count
The objective of the BMDBC is to count the number of birds of each species occurring in a participating county area from midnight to midnight on the second Saturday in May. This data snapshot provides a valuable scientific record of the bird populations occurring each year in Indiana. The results are compiled, analyzed, and published in the Indiana Audubon Quarterly.
The Big May Day Bird Count is conducted every year by the Indiana Audubon Society. It is held on the second Saturday in May each year. The 2016 2016 BMDBC was held on 14. The next count will be held on 13 May 2017. Save the Date now!
