Christmas Bird Counts

For those who like to plan ahead, the dates of this year’s Christmas Bird Counts are below. Because of COVID-19, they will have to be done a bit differently this year than in the past. Teams will have to decide among themselves whether they need to travel in separate cars. They will also have to take care to maintain physical distance while in the field. The last difference is that there can be no post-count gathering. Data will need to be submitted to the compilers electronically or by telephone.

If you wish to participate, contact the compiler. Feeder counters are welcome. However, since the count circles are in defined geographical areas, please check with the compiler whether your feeder is within the circle.
