Christmas Bird Count

Since the first Christmas Bird Count in 1900, volunteers have compiled the longest running database in ornithology, representing over a century of unbroken data on trends of early-winter bird populations across the Americas. The count is the compilation of data from field parties as well as from short jaunt and backyard or feeder surveys. Each group's Christmas Bird Count takes place within a fixed circle with a diameter of 15 miles. The Greenville County Bird Club's count circle is centered at the intersection of SC Hwy 253 and Fews Bridge Rd in northern Greenville County and includes Lake Cunningham, Lake Robinson, Berry’s Millpond, and Paris Mountain State Park. For complete details about the Christmas Bird Count's history and annual results from across North America, visit the Audubon Society's CBC website.

Next Christmas Bird Count:  TBD, December 2017
