Christmas Bird Count
Sturbridge Christmas Bird Count

The 7th annual Sturbridge Christmas Count will be held on December 17, 2002. If you are interested in participating, call us at WBC. The Sturbridge Christmas Count Circle has a 15-mile diameter and is broken up into sectors. The different species of birds are counted in each area and then the numbers are compiled at the end of the day. The totals alonf with the weather conditions are sent to National Audubon to help track trends throughout the country. This ongoing study helps to find species that are in decline, or that may be increasing, as well as providing data on migratory patterns in relation to the weather and habitat in all regions of the country.
