Want to participate in the Christmas Bird Count? The 2013 CBC will be on Saturday, December 28. You can register online by clicking the 'Register Here' button below and following the steps.
The deadline for signing-up for the count is December 16 and group assignments will be sent out by December 20. The CBC is now a free program. However, Seattle Audubon kindly asks you to donate the traditional $5.00 fee to Seattle Audubon’s Citizen Science Program. Simply make your donation during the CBC registration process. However, this is entirely optional and if not paid will not preclude anyone from taking part in the count.
Volunteers are needed for both the count and the potluck afterward. Count volunteers should be prepared to spend most of the daylight hours conducting the count, rain or shine. Preliminary species results will be shared at the potluck after leaders and volunteers gather upon completion of their counts at around 5 p.m. Doors open at 4 p.m. if you'd like to warm up; the potluck ends at 7 p.m.
The CBC Potluck will be held at Wedgwood Presbyterian Church in Wedgwood (8008 35th Avenue Northeast, corner of NE 35th and 80th Street). Parking is available in the church parking lot, but may be limited.
Please bring your own binoculars if you have them and dress for the weather!
