Christmas Bird Count Webinar

Tuesday, January 13th, 12:00 pm

Have you heard about the Christmas Bird Count but you are still confused about what it is and how to get involved? Join our webinar about the national history of the Christmas Bird Count, our local counts in Southeast Michigan, and why this yearly count is so important. The Christmas Bird Count began in 1900 and has grown to an international community science tradition. Each count is performed in a “count circle” with a diameter of 15 miles. Count organizers (such as Detroit Audubon and other Audubon chapters) direct groups of volunteers to survey sections of their circle and send the data to National Audubon for their extensive database.
