Christmas Bird Count

Manassas-Bull Run Christmas Bird Count - Registration Still Open!

2018 Christmas Bird Count

Sign Up for the 37th Annual Manassas-Bull Run Christmas Bird Count!

The Manassas-Bull Run Christmas Bird Count (CBC) will take place Sunday, December 16th. The center of the 15-mile-diameter count circle is near the intersection of Routes 28 and 29 in Centreville. Birders of all skill levels are needed. A complimentary hot lunch will be available to participants.

If you participated last year, your sector or route leader ought to be in touch soon. If you don’t hear from anyone, or if you’d like to be in a different sector, contact Phil Silas.

We’ll also be offering an opportunity for feeder watchers. If you or someone you know lives within the count circle and cannot attend the count, then participate indoors on count day by tallying birds that come to a feeder or yard.

Signing up is easy! Just contact Phil Silas with your phone, email, and birder level (B=Beginner, I=Intermediate, E=Expert), and any notes or comments.

New to the count or just want to brush up on your survey skills? Join us for our free CBC Workshop. You will learn the history, how, and why of this citizen science endeavor. The workshop will be Sunday, December 2 at 2 p.m. at the National Wildlife Federation Building, 1110 Wildlife Center Drive, Reston. To register, click on the button below.
