Audubon Christmas Bird Counts
December 14, 2019 - January 5, 2020
The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is a long-standing program of the National Audubon Society, with over 100 years of community science involvement. It is an early-winter bird census, where thousands of volunteers across the U.S., Canada, and many countries in the Western Hemisphere go out over a 24-hour period on one calendar day to count birds.
IAS members can participate in one of the annual Christmas Bird Counts, sponsored by the National Audubon Society. Though Indiana Audubon does not officially sponsor the 100+ year count program, IAS does compile all known Hoosier circles for easier participation in one or more counts by it’s members.
All Christmas Bird Counts are conducted between December 14 to January 5, inclusive dates, each season. Your local count will occur on one day between those dates. Participate in as many counts as you wish!
