The Christmas Bird Count is sponsored in Canada by Bird Studies Canada
and in the United States by Audubon
Volunteers are needed to join groups and report bird sightings, although it is possible to do this on your own and report your sightings.
This annual census is important in determining population trends of birds in North America.
In the past, both organizations have charged a small fee to participate, but this year it's all free.
