It's exciting to know our observations will be sent to Audobon to help other scientists gain knowledge of bird populations, and guide conservation. The Christmas Bird Count is the longest running science citizen survey in the world! We already plan to participate again next year.
|A beautiful sunrise!|
|We did quite a bit of driving--lots of different habitats means more varieties of birds!|
|Lot of birds to see on the water!|
|THE LIST. After observing in one area, we'd meet back together and tally our findings. We saw so many different birds!|
|Checking out the markings of a gull. (Budding Ornithologist added 4 new birds to his life list!)|
