Looking for a neat way to get outdoors over the holidays?

By participating in the Christmas Bird Count, you can get some fresh air and help wildlife. Organized by the National Audubon Society, the count sends citizen scientists — the volunteers — outdoors to count all the birds they can identify in a 24-hour period. The numbers provide information used to gauge the health of wintering bird populations.

Counts are going on right now, and you don’t need experience. Check out the National Audubon Society’s FAQ page for more information. For more places and ways to watch birds, visit www.ncbirdingtrail.org.
