Kern River Valley Christmas Bird Count

The 2016 Kern River Valley Christmas Bird Count will be held on Sunday, January 1, 2017. Rain or shine.

This is the 37th consecutive year of this count. The count area is a circle 15 miles in diameter, centered in the middle of Isabella Reservoir. Only species and numbers of birds seen within this area may be counted.

The results of over 1000 counts in North America are compiled each year by the National Audubon Society and used to ascertain the annual distribution and fluctuation in numbers of North American birds. The count is part of a continent-wide, citizen science, effort, with the published results used to assess the distribution and population of wintering birds.

Many counters are needed to achieve a good count and maintain our high nationally-accredited standing. For the past few years, CBC participation has been free but registration is still required.

Your registration is requested by December 29th to properly organize sector groups for thorough coverage of the entire area.

Our annual Christmas Bird Count will be on Sunday, January 1, 2017, dawn to dusk, rain or shine! It will be followed as usual with our compilation potluck or Pizza Party at 6PM. 

Count Compilers: Alison Sheehey please return all forms to Alison.

*NOTE: The South Fork CBC is a separate event and coordinated independently by Denise LaBerteaux. The South Fork count is on Saturday, December 31, 2016.
