Travis Audubon: Christmas Bird Count Training Session
Each year, thousands of birders from all over the world gather and count birds at their favorite Christmas Bird Count (CBC) locations. The Christmas Bird Count is the longest running wildlife census in the world and provides critical data on bird population trends and movements. The CBC season is December 14 through January 5 every year.
Join Shelia Hargis and Laurie Foss for a CBC training session for birders who are new to CBCs and for anyone else who would like to warm-up your CBC skills before the season starts. Gather at 7:30 am, eat breakfast, discuss how the count works, split into two groups, survey assigned areas and then re-group for lunch and a countdown.
