Audubon's Annual Christmas Bird Count
Each year, from December 14 to January 5, the National Audubon Society’s
longest-running wintertime tradition, the annual Christmas Bird Count
(CBC), takes place throughout the Americas. The data collected by observers over the past century are extremely valuable, allowing researchers, conservation biologists, and interested individuals to monitor the long-term status of North American birds. Count results from 1900 to the present are available through Audubon's website.
Dates and contact info for the counts within our North Central Washington region are listed below (as well as in the December Wild Phlox and on our facebook page). To find other CBC count circles, in Washington state or elsewhere across the country, see the National Audubon Society website.
