Christmas bird count – Cambridge
Monday, December 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Started in 1900, the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is North America’s longest running citizen science project. Counts happen in over 2000 localities throughout the Western Hemisphere. Each CBC is conducted on a single day between Dec. 14th and Jan. 5th. Counts are carried out within defined diameter circles that stay the same from year to year. They are organized, usually as group efforts at the local level, often by a birding club or naturalist organization.
The Cambridge CBC is December 17, 2023, and takes place in snow, rain, or shine. All birds observed within the 15-mile diameter circle during the 24 hours are counted, but even a few minutes at home spent watching a feeder is valuable information. We welcome all birders to the count, new or experienced, so feel free to contact email@example.com if you have any questions or are interested in participating in the count. Looking for more feeder watchers in particular.
