Christmas Bird Counts
continued from the home page

Most of the counters who will set out armed with a notepad or smart phone, and binoculars, often bundled against the cold, are not trained scientists. They are everyday people, volunteers. That's why we call the CBC "crowd science". We invite you to participate in the 118th annual CBC, and join citizen scientists who are monitoring birds in over 2020 CBC circles across the country. Citizen Science is a way for you to connect with the natural world through fun activities that generate vital information for the conservation of birds. This partnership with scientists benefits us all: you will learn about birds by taking part, and Audubon's science staff gains invaluable information. Most importantly, the birds benefit because it helps Audubon focus on those birds and habitats that need our help most. By saving the birds and their habitats, we also save ourselves. If you would like to participate, come to the CBC organizational meeting, Thursday, December 14, 6:30 pm at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center. Contact Springfield CBC coordinator Greg Samuel or Taney County CBC coordinator Charley Burwick for more information.
