Christmas Bird Count - Citizen Science in Action

Red-tailed Hawk gets
counted!

by F. Portmann

New York City Audubon plays its part in the national survey of birds that takes place every year. The data collected by observers over the past century allow researchers, conservation biologists, and other interested individuals to study the long-term health and status of bird populations across North America.

An unusual species anytime of year for Central Park - Red-headed Woodpecker gets counted in 2010 and again in 2011!

by F. Portmann

The 115th annual Christmas Bird Count is under way nationwide, and in all five boroughs of New York City. NYC Audubon is responsible for reporting data for the Lower Hudson Count Circle, which includes all of Manhattan and parts of New Jersey. 

NYC Audubon helped kick off the Christmas Bird Count season by hosting Manhattan's Central Park compilation gathering on Sunday, December 14. Together, we tallied 4,315 birds and 57 species in the park!

There is still time to participate in this fun and engaging annual citizen science tradition. Counts are scheduled for Brooklyn and Staten Island on Saturday, December 20, and for the Bronx on Sunday, December 28. To get more information or sign up for other New York City counts, please contact the coordinator for each borough, below:
