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 2019
The 2019 Christmas Bird Count(CBC) was hosted by LCAS on Saturday, December 14th. A total of 56 surveyors gathered at Jorgenson’s Restaurant in the early hours and spent the day gathering data to support the event’s 120th birthday. Blue Jays, Northern Shrikes and Trumpeter Swans highlighted the day and several species were seen in record numbers.
