Audubon Christmas Bird Count reveals more than 103 species

By Staff | Dec 20, 2010

On Saturday, Dec. 18, the Sanibel-Captiva Audubon Society conducted it’s annual Christmas Bird Count. One hundred eighteen participants counted a total of 11,893 birds comprised of 103 different species.

The results of the San-Cap bird count will be reported to the National Audubon Society and will become part of the 111th Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC).

Audubon Christmas Bird Counts are conducted throughout much of the Western Hemisphere from mid-December through early January. The CBC is a fertile source of historical information on the status and distribution of early winter bird populations and is studied by scientists and interested individuals the world over.

San-Cap Audubon sincerely thanks all those who took part in this year’s successful Christmas Bird Count.
