Sign-up for the 115th Christmas Bird Count

Depending on your location, one of the dates between December 14, 2014 and January 5, 2015 is the date for the 115th Christmas Bird Count.

For more than a century citizen scientists have been collecting data for the longest running wildlife census collecting useful information on bird populations across the Americas. Some observers brave the elements for a few hours while others simply keep a tally from the comfort of their home logging visitors to their feeders, while others spot birds from the warmth and comfort of their vehicle.  Either way, it's an interesting and totally fun way to spend a few hours on your select day, and you don't have to be a hardcore birder to participate.
