Red-tailed Hawk gets
counted!

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 114th annual Christmas Bird Count will soon be 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. And we host Manhattan's Central Park compilation gathering at the Central Park Arsenal each year, a festive event!  

This year's Central Park Count will take place on Sunday, December 15.

Central Park Count Schedule:

8am: Meet at the South Pump Station of the Reservoir (85th Street & 5th Avenue). All counting groups will be escorted by Urban Park Rangers.

12:30pm: Data tally and refreshments at the Arsenal Gallery (3rd floor of the Arsenal at 64th Street & 5th Avenue).

Dress warmly and don’t forget your binoculars! For more information, contact NYC Audubon at 212-691-7483 ext. 414 or email us at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
