Christmas Bird Count

2017 Christmas Bird Count Info

We hope that you will join us for the 2017 Christmas Bird Count!  As the nation’s long-running citizen science project, the Christmas Bird Count is one of the most important sources of
information pertaining to the distribution and abundance of birds.  Over the years, this information has been collected by birdwatchers just like you - people who band together to develop bird lists in the field, or individuals who count birds at their feeders.  We need you to help continue this tradition!

On December 30, we will conduct this year’s Pittsburgh Area Christmas Bird Count.  A team of leaders have been assembled to coordinate the various sections of the count.  If you are interested in participating, please select a section in which to participate (this may be your own neighborhood, or it may be the area where your favorite woodlot is located), and contact the leader for that area.  They will give you instructions on where to meet, or how to participate.  If you prefer to watch your own bird feeders, please still contact the leader for your area so they are aware of your participation and can get you the appropriate materials.
