Each winter the National Audubon Society sponsors the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) season from Dec. 14-Jan. 5 across a network of 15-mile diameter count circle areas across the U.S. and Western Hemisphere. The CBC is our country’s longest running community science event and has been happening for over a century! The Carefree CBC encompasses upland Sonoran Desert, riparian woodland, and surrounding rural and urban areas. Birders of all skill levels and physical ability encouraged to help, with teams comprised of an experienced birder as a leader. Any participation throughout the day is welcome! Team assignments will be arranged before the count so that as many areas are covered as possible. Registration is required. For registration and more details, please contact Jen Bruening (jen@mcdowellsonoran.org).
