Arizona Christmas Bird Counts - 2013/2014

The National Audubon Society has conducted Christmas bird counts since 1900. Volunteers from across North America and beyond take to the field during one calendar day between December 14 and January 5 to record every bird species and individual bird encountered within a designated 15-mile diameter circle. These records now comprise an extensive ornithological database that enables monitoring of winter bird populations and the overall health of the environment.

Participants are typically assigned to teams based on their bird identification skill level and endurance. Many counts hold a compilation dinner at the end of the day where results are tabulated and stories shared. Help is needed on most of these counts, so find one that interests you and contact the compiler for more information. The counts are now FREE.

Sonora, Mexico Counts

Alamos: December 14 - The Alamos count encompasses many of the best birding areas around Alamos. Over the years, we've had many renowned birders join us for this count and we hope that this year is the same...or better! For more information, contact David MacKay This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Reserva Monte Mojino (ReMM): December 16 - This is surely the most remote and logistically challenging CBC in the world...but what an adventure it is! We have a great team that helps organize the ReMM count and we make it doable for birders of all levels. If you are planning to do this count, know that we go out to ReMM on the 15th, do the count on the 16th and return to Alamos on the 17th. This is a great opportunity to get out in the backcountry of the Sierra Madre and to support this very worthy conservation project. For more information, contact Suzanne Winckler This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Navopatia: December 21 - Our friends out at the coast run a great operation and participating in this count gives you the opportunity to visit the unique Navopatia Field Station and bird the various habitats at the edge of the magnificent Agiabampo Estuary. We encourage participants to stay in Navopatia the night before the count. As with the other two counts, everything is super organized to make it easy for all!
