2018 Christmas Bird Count is On!

Take part in this long-running citizen science project

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2017/18 Christmas Bird Count! Stay tuned for the results of this year's count.

The Christmas Bird Count is an all-day census of early-winter bird populations sponsored by Bird Studies Canada in partnership with the Audubon Society. People across North America cooperate to count birds in their area between December 14th to January 5th. The results of their efforts are compiled into the longest running database in ornithology, representing over a century of unbroken data on trends of early-winter bird populations across the Americas. Simply put, the Christmas Bird Count, or "CBC", is citizen science in action.

Christmas Bird Counts are held annually in several locations in Manitoba, and are a great reason to get outside! See the latest CBC results here.
