Christmas Bird Count soon!

From Cornell Lab of Ornithology:

Get Ready for the Christmas Bird Count
Audubon’s 111th annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) will take place between Tuesday, December 14, 2010 and Wednesday, January 5, 2011. The longest-running wildlife census in the world, the count engages citizen scientists from Barrow, Alaska to Belize and beyond. Since 2000, Bird Studies Canada (BSC) has partnered with Audubon to coordinate counts in Canada.
From feeder-watchers and field observers to count compilers and regional editors, everyone who takes part in the Christmas Bird Count does it for love of birds and the excitement of friendly competition—and with the knowledge that their efforts are making a difference for science and bird conservation.
