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.
CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT 2017 Announced
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!
