Birders will flock together for annual count Dec. 16
December 6, 2023
During the upcoming bird count on Dec. 16, community members can acquaint themselves with Wrangell’s fine feathered friends and make meaningful contributions to a nationwide citizen science project.
The island’s birding community participates in Audubon’s annual Christmas Bird Count, which takes place from mid-December to early January. During the window of the project, people identify, count and report the birds they see. “These observations help scientists better understand global bird populations before one of their annual migrations,” according to Audubon’s website.
