Additional Event Details

Now in its 118th year, the Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is a citizen science program and the nation's longest running bird survey. On count day participants count all birds they encounter within their assigned section of a 15-mile diameter circle. Each 15-mile count circle has a compiler and the circle is broken into sections with a group of volunteers for each. Each group then tries to find all the birds in their area within a calendar day. Volunteers count the birds they actually see and hear, not the birds that should be there. Birders of any skill level are welcome. The amount of time you volunteer is flexible; some watch their bird feeder for an hour, while others spend 15+ hours in the field. Contact Don Simons at [email protected] in order to participate in the Mount Magazine count. Participation is free. For more information about other counts across the state, contact State Compiler Leif Anderson at 479-284-3150 ext. 3151 or email [email protected] .
