Christmas Bird Counts

Rochester Christmas Bird Count in the time of COVID-19: 2020

Sector leaders have consented to participate so that Rochester can contribute to the national effort for the 117th year on December 20, 2020….but many things will be different.

Social aspects of the count will be curtailed severely.  During fieldwork, birders will forego carpooling.  We will be unable to pair new participants with experienced ones.  The tally party is ‘off-the-books’.   Once the birds are counted, we will share results electronically.
