Christmas Bird Count

The Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Count is an all-day census of early winter bird populations that takes place every year between December 14 and January 5. More than 50,000 volunteer observers across the Americas take part in counting all birds in their particular area. The result is over a century of data on bird populations from North to South America. This data is crucial, as it is used by scientists to monitor bird population changes over time.

For the past three years we, along with the Audubon Society and other volunteers, have completed the census of birds in the River Park from 280 to 880, and in Guadalupe Gardens. Please see the list below for the birds that were counted in 2001, 2002, and 2003.

 

Wish you could have been there? Don’t wait for the next Christmas Bird Count to enjoy the birds, just grab your binoculars and head on down to the Guadalupe River Park & Gardens and let us know what you find! Also, please visit the Audubon Society’s website at www.audubon.org to find out more about the birds in our area.
