Birders to participate in hemisphere-wide survey

Email News Alerts

This coming week marks the 107th time that birders will take part in what has become a hemisphere-wide bird survey.

Known nationally as the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count, or CBC, this event saw its start in 1900 as conservation was just beginning.
