The Audubon Society gears up for Christmas Bird Count
The Audubon Society’s annual Christmas Bird Count is getting underway in Wyoming this weekend. The way it works is volunteers go out to specific areas, look for birds and document what they see. Bird counts are being organized in about 20 locations across the state over the next few weeks. I spoke with Jacelyn Downey, a community naturalist with Audubon Wyoming, to find out why the count is so important. She says it’s an important way to collect data.
