Christmas Bird Count
2012 Christmas Bird Counts
The annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is one of Marin Audubonís favorite traditions. Each year three separate counts are conducted in Marin County: the South Marin CBC, the Cheep Thrills CBC, and the Point Reyes CBC.
The data from these counts is incorporated into National Audubonís CBC database. By participating in a CBC you make an enormous contribution to conservation. Audubon and other organizations use data collected in this longest-running wildlife census to assess the health of bird populations - and to help guide conservation action.
