The 2023 Padilla Bay Christmas Bird Count (CBC) organized by Skagit Audubon will take place Saturday, December 30th.
The fifteen-mile diameter count circle is one of nearly 2,500 where volunteers will document the species and numbers of birds present late this year. Because the CBC is such a long-running project its data make an important contribution to avian science. Rather than a birding field trip, the CBC is an effort to collect the most complete and accurate data possible on the birds within the count circle. We particularly need the help of experienced birders. For information about participating in this all-day, rain or shine survey birders should contact Tim Manns (email@example.com or 360.333.8985).
