Audubon Christmas Bird Count

Take part in the nation's longest-running community-science project! This month, for the 120th year, the Audubon Christmas Bird Count will mobilize nearly 80,000 volunteer bird counters in more than 2,600 locations across the Americas.

Join us for our Oakland CBC on Sunday, December 15th, or our San Francisco CBC on Friday, December 27th. Beginners and experienced birders are both warmly welcome! Spend a fun day birding outdoors, contributing to our knowledge and protection of bird populations, then share your team's findings at a festive count dinner.

For details and registration, see our CBC web page. Registration closes about two weeks before each count. Are you with the media? Contact our Communications Manager at to cover the count.
