California Christmas Bird Counts

DECEMBER 14, 2018 - JANUARY 5, 2019

 

WILDFIRES or MUDSLIDES MAY ALTER OR CANCEL COUNTS WITH NO NOTICE - be prepared.

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.

If you see a banded PELICAN please contact: International Bird Rescue - Blue-Banded Pelican Program with the data. http://www.bird-rescue.org/contact/found-a-bird/reporting-a-banded-bird.aspx

Other Banded Birds can be reported to: https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbl/
