Please consider a contribution to the Christmas Bird Count to ensure the future of the program and to help advance our bird conservation initiatives.

Spending a winter's day with friends and family counting birds on Audubon's Christmas Bird Count (CBC) not only provides crucial conservation information for the nation's longest-running citizen science project, it also binds us to our community and local birding spots. Since 1900, the Christmas Bird Count has been helping Audubon and other conservationists learn more about birds and about what we can do to help protect them.

In December 2012, Audubon removed the mandatory participation fee and replaced it with a voluntary donation system. Your donations are more important than ever to maintain the count, tell you about the results, and to take conservation action.
