Sunday, December 17, 2023 - Fayetteville Christmas Bird Count

The 2023 Fayetteville Christmas Bird Count will be held Sunday, December 17th. This all-day bird census involves a number of teams spreading out to survey different zones around Fayetteville. At the end of the day, we reunite to gather our data into one official report to be submitted to the National Audubon Society's records that stretch back over a century. There are plenty of opportunities for new birders to join more experienced teams for some or all of the day. Email CBC Coordinator Mitchell Pruitt if you are interested in joining:

Field trips for January, February, and March will be posted in December.
