All are invited to join in this count ,whether you count at your birdfeeders or join in the morning and/or afternoon drive around the count circle.

Each year, counters go in search of every bird species they can find, compile the information and send it on to the Audubon Society. This information is used to assess the health of bird populations and guide future conservation action.
