Christmas Bird Counts start this month and bring several opportunities to help out in Memphis and the surrounding area. This is the 121st year for the CBC, the world’s longest running Citizen Science survey.
Birding parties will mostly cover different areas of Fayette County, Tennessee. The count takes place in an established 15-mile wide circle. See this circle and others here.
In the COVID guidelines for the 121st CBC, Audubon asks that participants stay socially distanced and/or wear masks and carpool only within groups that are already socializing together such as family and very close friends and that there be no in-person compilation gatherings. Activities must comply with all current state and municipal COVID-19 guidelines.
