Audubon Society "Christmas Bird Count" Next Week

Grab your binoculars and join your friends for Seattle’s Christmas Bird Count (CBC) on Saturday, December 27. Now in its 115th year, this annual bird census draws birders of all abilities to count as many birds as possible over a 24-hour period. This Seattle tradition is a great way to see new birds and old friends — and experienced birders, neighborhood residents, and newcomers are all welcome!  
If your home is within the Seattle CBC area, you can even stay at home and report the birds that visit your feeder on count day, as long as you have made prior arrangements with the count organizer.  
After a full day of birding, warm up with an evening soup potluck and a tally of the species seen during the day.  
The event is free, but a $5 donation is recommended to help support Seattle Audubon’s Citizen Science programs. . Visit Seattle Audubon's Christmas Bird Count registration webpage or Seattle Audubon's website for more information.
