Join the Christmas Bird Count

You can help monitor and conserve North America's birds! To get involved in the Christmas Bird Count, find a count near you and contact the local compiler. You should be prepared to commit part or all of the count day as either a field observer or feeder watcher somewhere within the count circle. Compilers will want to know how comfortable you are with identifying winter birds in your area.

Field observers cover a portion of the count circle on their own or with a small group, counting all birds they find.

Feeder watchers count birds at their feeders for a portion of the day.

If you can't find a local count and are interested in starting one in your area, please contact:
