Counting Birds: A Christmas Tradition
Audubon says they are looking for any amount of data. So if it’s too cold outside and you can’t go to your local park, you can stay inside and count the birds that come to your backyard feeder.
With an accurate count of bird species, Audubon can correctly measure the effects of climate change as well as inform the organization on how to better strategize its conservation efforts for specific bird populations. Last year’s data was integrated into Audubon’s Bird and Climate Change Analysis.
So next time you’re out walking the dog or hiking through your local hills or mountains, take your binoculars and notebook with you. You might just find a Tufted Titmouse.
