What is the CBC and Why is it important?

What is the CBC? – It is the largest conservation effort known to mankind! Over 50,000 observers across the Western Hemisphere count and record as many individuals and species over a 24-hour period (Midnight to Midnight).

Why is it important? – The count period of December 14 to January 5 each marks the end of the fall migration and provides an opportunity to monitor trends in early winter bird populations. Information regarding the Audubon Christmas Bird Count can be found here.
