Christmas Bird Count

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 a family friendly event for birders of all ages and abilities.  The only requirement is a desire to find birds and support citizen science along the way.  This year’s CBC will take place on Saturday, December 16th.  Save the date! More details to come!
