Denver Urban Christmas Bird Count

Every year on January 1

Start the New Year with a half day or whole day effort – a great way to start 2022!

National Audubon’s Christmas Bird Count is a holiday tradition – and everyone is welcome: beginners, intermediate, and advanced. The more eyes we have, the more birds we see. We like to encourage people to get involved.

Denver Audubon supports the bird count under direction of National Audubon. The Denver Urban count covers a circle with a 15-mile diameter that includes the Platte River from North City limits to Mississippi, west to Buckley Field & Rocky Mtn. Arsenal. Learn more about the Christmas Bird Count on the National Audubon website. (link to open in new tab so they don’t lose our page)

Locations and times are posted on our Events page in early December.
