The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) season is approaching and I want to include the dates of the counts in our membership area on our website–The Bird Watch–and on its event calendar.
I will post these events in the Special Upcoming Events area as soon as I know enough about them to create an event post for each of them. Stay tuned. — the Sangre de Cristo Audubon Society webmaster
There are ten CBCs–aka Citizen Science projects–in our area but so far only six have published dates:
14 December – Orilla Verde
16 December – Dixon
16 December – Las Vegas
17 December – Los Alamos
29 December – Santa Fe
31 December – Española
Other 2017 CBC events in our membership area include Questa, Cimarron, Angel Fire/Eagle Nest, and Maxwell. I am awaiting replies to my requests for information from the leaders of those counts. So, stay tuned for updates …
In the meantime, below we do have this comprehensive list published for 118th Count occurring in New Mexico between Thursday, December 14th, 2017 to Friday, January 5th, 2018. Though the Christmas Bird Count map on the Audubon New Mexico page is a bit dated, the reproduced list below is pretty complete, and it might help others locate the counts they want to attend and find the contact info for the count leaders.
[NOTE: there is a typographical error in the subtitle of this list, which read Thursday, December 14th, 2017.]
Also, the National Audubon Society has a Christmas Bird Count page that you might want to go to.
