Christmas Bird Count
Did you know that starting December 14, and going through January 5, the yearly Christmas Bird Count will take place? Did you know that such a thing even existed?
I first learned about this project a few months ago through one of our local state parks that participates in the project. It is a long-time project that has apparently spanned over 100 years and is also a holiday tradition for many people and families. It is the longest running Citizen Science survey in the world, and I have enjoyed learning more about it. While I will not be able to participate in a nearby project this year, it is something that I am going to explore further in future years.
The National Audubon Society has a great page on this project, so I will just happily link to it here, for anyone else that might be interested in participating this year or sometime in the future!
