Thanks go to the people who’ve made the CBC what it is today. The participants, of course! And the compilers. Also the count circle leaders. Special thanks to Geoff LeBaron, Director, Christmas Bird Count and Editor-in-Chief, for the seemingly impossible task of summarizing all the generated data. Locally, thanks go to John Trapp for summarizing the data from all of the Michigan Counts. And to Jerry Jourdan for organizing/compiling the Monroe, MI count for over 40 years.
