Christmas Bird Counts (CBC)
Join the fun by counting with us on our official counts or if your home falls within the official bird count circles (see maps below), submit the number of birds you observe at your feeders to Francis Moore, our count coordinator.

Learn more about the counting protocols on Audubon's official CBC Count website FAQ page. Check out other Iowa CBCs on the Iowa Ornithologists' Union CBC website.
