Anyone who would like to participate in a Christmas Bird Count with the Audubon Society starts by accessing a map online at audubon.maps.arcgis.com.
On the map find a green or yellow circle near you, designating open areas. Click on it, and find out who to contact.
Check out a website, send an email for additional information or to sign up.
Then polish your binoculars and your camera lenses, preparing for an environmental accomplishment with like-minded folks.
Please note: Many of the circles are hosted by local birding clubs. You might make new friends while doing important work.
