Why Christmas Bird Counts Are So Important
The Christmas Bird Count is the oldest and longest running Citizen Science Project in the Western Hemisphere – this is its 121st year! We’ll discuss many aspects of the CBC, from history, to how it works, to what we’ve learned and why it’s important to continue the tradition. And the effect of this year’s COVID restrictions will also be discussed.
Presenter Yousif Attia, is a Citizen Science Coordinator at Birds Canada who helps manage the CBC and eBird in Canada.
