Manassas-Bull Run Christmas Bird Count
2017 Christmas Bird Count
Join us for the 118th annual Christmas Bird Count (36th for ASNV). We are looking for people to count in the Manassas Battlefield area, Bull Run, and Manassas City areas as well as around Centerville, south of Dulles Airport, and Chantilly on Sunday, December 17th. This year, we will again be offering an opportunity for feeder watchers. If you or someone you know lives in the count circle and cannot go on the count, he or she can sit inside and count the birds that come to a feeder or yard on count day as another way to participate. If you helped us last year, your sector leader will be contacting you in November. If you are new to our CBC and want to volunteer or would like to be in a different sector, sign up using the“Register” button below.
Also, come to our free CBC Workshop where you can learn about CBCs generally, our own CBC in particular, where the data goes and how it is used, and tips for learning or brushing up on your counting skills. It’s on Thursday evening, November 2nd . Time is 7 PM; place is the NWF building, 11100 Wildlife Center Dr, Reston. Please sign up using the registration button below.
