The Time is Approaching for the
115th Annual Christmas Bird Count
(CBC)

From mid-December through the first week in January tens of thousands of volunteers throughout the Americas take part in an adventure that has become a family tradition among generations. Families and students, birders and scientists, armed with binoculars, bird guides and checklists go out on an annual mission - often before dawn.

The Lincoln City CBC volunteers meet at Pig 'n Pancake restaurant at 6:30am on Sunday, December 14th to receive their assignments of a sector to cover throughout the day. The culmination of the day's efforts ends with a potluck dinner at the River House along the Salmon River. To participate and receive more information, contact Dawn at 503-507-8457.

For over one hundred years, the desire to both make a difference and to experience the beauty of nature has driven dedicated people to leave the comfort of a warm house during the Holiday season. Each of the citizen scientists who annually braves snow, wind, or rain, to take part in the Christmas Bird Count makes an enormous contribution to conservation.

Audubon and other organizations use data collected in this longest-running wildlife census to assess the health of bird populations - and to help guide conservation action. From feeder-watchers and field observers to count compilers and regional editors, everyone who takes part in the Christmas Bird Count does it for love of birds and the excitement of friendly competition -- and with the knowledge that their efforts are making a difference for science and bird conservation.
