The Christmas Bird Count started in 1900 and is the longest running Citizen Science project in North America. Christmas Bird Counts are conducted on a single day between Dec 14 and Jan 5 within a 24 km diameter circle. Many are organized by Nature Alberta Member Clubs! Count birds in your local count circle to contribute data. Results are used to assess population and distribution trends of birds.
You can participate as a feeder watcher, from the comfort and warmth of your own home, or as a bush beater by coordinating efforts with others in your circle to go for a walk to count birds in the field.
Join in the fun! Information can be found at Christmas Bird Counts – Nature Alberta or send an email to email@example.com to inquire about the local Buffalo Lake Nature Club counts and how you may participate.
