For over forty years the Point Reyes Christmas Bird Count (CBC) has been an annual tradition monitoring the winter populations of over two hundred species of birds that winter here. The National Seashore and adjoining areas rank in the top ten of over two thousand counts nationwide in terms of species diversity. This remarkable accomplishment is mostly the result of the wide variety of habitats here. The day after the 2013 count we will enjoy some of this amazing avian diversity and also look for any rarities found on the count. This will be a moderately fast paced day aiming to see a lot of birds, but allowing time to learn bird identification by sight and sound. David compiled the CBC for twenty years and will share information on population trends of the birds of Point Reyes. Learn which birds are more common here than in the past and conversely which are less common.
