Litchfield Christmas Bird Count

CHARLES SLATE — cslate@thesunnews.com

If you consider yourself a bird enthusiast, you might be interested in helping with the National Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Count.

The annual count, now in its 114th year, compiles data which is then used by biologists to gauge the health of bird populations. It also helps to guide conservation efforts.

All counts take place between Dec. 14 and Jan. 5. In South Carolina, there are 27 different groups participating in locations across the state, so no matter where you live there’s likely to be one near you. Anyone can participate, even beginning birders, and there’s no fee to sign up.

To learn more, or to sign up, visit birds.audubon.org/christmas-bird-count.
