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 cover different parts of the Memphis area, including Shelby Farms Park, Ensley Bottoms, T.O. Fuller State Park, Overton Park, Raleigh, and more. The count takes place in an established 15-mile wide circle.  See the Memphis 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.

Contact compiler Margaret Jefferson at or 901-274-1045 for more information or to join one of the birding parties. Contact George Payne at or 901-233-8766 if you wish to join the Shelby Farms birding party.
