The 115th annual Christmas Bird Count is scheduled for Dec. 14, 2014 to Jan. 5, 2015. Organized by the National Audubon Society, this all-volunteer effort takes a snapshot of bird populations to monitor their status and distribution across the Western Hemisphere. The results are compiled into a database that is shared with federal, state and private authorities.
Counts are open to birders of all skill levels. Novices are placed in groups with more experienced birders. New to CBCs? Join us in the fun!
The Fort Worth CBC will be held on Saturday, Dec, 20. If you would like to join a particular area please reach out to the leader of that area. Info: Mary Lee Johnson at [email protected] to be placed on a team.
See website link for list of the areas, their description and contact information for the leaders. Please contact the leader directly if you have a preference as to the team you'd like to join or contact Mary Lee to find an area in need of volunteers. Also, if you live in the Count Circle please help us by counting the birds in your backyard or neighborhood on the count day and submit the data to Mary Lee for inclusion in the Fort Worth CBC or SBC submissions.
