2018 Christmas Bird Count

December 15, 2018

Would you like to be a part of a nationwide citizen science project? Join us for the 119th Christmas Bird Count! This year’s CBC will be conducted on Saturday, December 15. New and experienced birders are needed to conduct field bird surveys within a 15-mile circle around Riveredge. You can also count birds at your backyard feeder from the comfort of your home. The results of the Count are used to study the effects of seed crop fluctuations, weather, and the influence of humans on the bird population in this area. Complete Christmas Bird Count information and history can be found here at National Audubon Society.

How to Sign-Up for the Christmas Bird Count at Riveredge

If you are able to help with the Count, please fill out this form and email or mail it to Mary Hollebeck no later than December 7.  This information will help us to assign sections and ensure that our entire area is covered. Be sure to indicate the section you would like to cover on the form (see map here).

We could use help for all or part of the day! For more information or to sign up to help, please contact Mary Holleback at mholleback@riveredge.us or 262-416-1224.

Day of Event Details

The Count runs from dawn to dusk so you can volunteer to help for all or just a portion of the day. A continental breakfast will be available for hungry early birders at 5:00 AM in the Riveredge barn. At 5:00 PM all counters are invited to join us back in the barn to compile data, swap stories, and enjoy a light snack.
