Schedule of 2014/15 and recap of 2013/14

California Christmas Bird Counts

DECEMBER 14, 2014 - JANUARY 5, 2015

Today's Date:

Participants are typically assigned to teams based on their bird identification skill level and endurance. The count results are published online only by National Audubon and Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Help is needed on many of these counts, so find one that interests you and contact the compiler for more information. Many counts are weather permitting so make sure you contact your compiler to verify that the count hasn't been postponed or cancelled.

Compilers please send me your date as soon as you know it. Email (I erase the date each year and start fresh)
