Everything you need to know about joining one of Eastside Audubon's eight teams for the Christmas Bird Count

Join a Christmas Bird Count Team

Here's how you sign up to join a CBC team and what happens next:

    1. Explore the CBC Count Areas below and choose the one where you want to bird for the CBC.
    2. On or after November 1 at 5 p.m., email or phone the leader listed for the area you've chosen. In your message, include your:
      • Name
      • Phone number(s)
      • Email
      • Whether you're willing to drive
      • Second and third choice of count areas, if you like
      • Whether you're coming to the CBC dinner at 5:30 p.m. in Kirkland, and any food restrictions
    3. Leaders will fill their teams on a first-come, first-served basis. If your first-choice team fills up, the leader will pass your information on to Sharon Aagaard. Sharon will get you on another route and let you know.
    4. A few days before CBC count day on December 16, the leader of your area will contact you to confirm where and when to meet, whether or not you're driving (tank full when you start), and what to wear and bring. For a preview, check What to Bring on Count Day.
