Wild Bird Counts

Is a personal year-long count a birder can make each year of the species without using you fossil fuel, but instead using your feet or bicycle near your home or work. Several categories exist.

"Find a good spot for bird watching -- preferably one with good views of a variety of habitats and lots of birds. Next you create a real or imaginary circle 17 feet in diameter and sit inside the circle for 24 hours, counting all the bird species you see or hear. " Takes place in the fall.

For several days in December and into January, birders count bird and species.

Takes place in winter. For several days, birders count birds in several locations of their choice.
