High Adventure





At the annual Christmas Bird Count, birdwatchers brave cold temperatures and all weather conditions to survey birds in a designated “count circle” on a given day. International in scope, the Christmas Bird Count is organized and compiled by the National Audubon Society, who coordinates all count circles so they don’t overlap. Join one of the longest running citizen science projects and over 120 years of data!
