Murders and Exaltations: The Annual Christmas Bird Count
With Rebecca Coulter, Compiler SB Christmas Bird Count
Monday, March 26, 2012
132 Red-tailed Hawks. 1,015 Anna’s Hummingbirds. 14 Canyon Wrens. 1 Burrowing Owl. How do birders conduct the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count, and more to the point, why? Can they really tell if they’ve counted that bird twice? From the small but mighty team of back-country “owlers” up at o-dark-thirty to the backyard feeder watchers, find out why Santa Barbarans and birders around the country fan out around their neighborhoods in a coordinated 24-hour survey of all the birds among us. Join us to learn more about this 112-year-old Audubon project: an example of citizen science at its best.
