Christmas Bird Count

Horned Lark by Bob Martinka

Since 1973 Last Chance Audubon has participated in this national event to collect data on wintering bird populations. The Helena area is divided up into nine quadrants and during a single day in December teams disperse to document both species and numbers of birds, concluding with a potluck to swap stories about the day’s sightings.


The annual Helena Christmas Bird Count hosted by Last Chance Audubon is planned for Saturday December 15th.   Please watch for details on this website or in our monthly newsletter.
