Audubon Christmas bird count in Jammestown

Date(s) - Sunday, Dec 16, 2018


Audubon Community Nature Center will hold the annual Christmas bird count on Sunday, Dec. 16 in the Jamestown area.

Volunteers will join a dedicated crew of bird watchers to count birds as part of a nationwide science project to analyze winter birds across the continent.

This citizen science project has been gathering local information on bird populations since the 1940s to create a better local and national understanding of winter birds.

Newer birders are paired with experienced birders to go out to different parts of the region to count birds. Different count options are available, from backyard birdfeeder watching to hiking out through the woods. The count continues regardless of the weather.

To participate in the Jamestown count, contact Bill Seleen at 499-4204.
