Central Loudoun Christmas Bird Count

December 28, 2021 All day

Join Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy as we participate in the National Audubon Society’s annual Christmas Bird Count. Begun in 1899, these surveys are held all over North America, with the results used to better understand bird populations and dynamics. Our count circle has a 15-mile diameter and covers 177 square miles of Loudoun’s countryside: north to Waterford, south to Aldie, east to Ashburn, and west to Purcellville. Everyone is welcome; amateurs are teamed with experienced birders, and every eye and ear helps! After the counting and depending on COVID-19, we may meet for a Tally Rally where we will find out what others found and share stories of the day’s highlights. If you are interested in participating for just a couple of hours or the entire day, sign up here or contact Joe Coleman at 540-554-2542 or jcoleman@loudounwildlife.org or Bryan Henson at bhenson@loudounwildlife.org.  Registration required by December 22.
