Join birders from around the world for this annual global event to count the species observed in your backyard, park, or anywhere you happen to be on these dates. This event is free, and the data collected is used by researchers and scientists to determine which birds are being seen – or not seen – as they work to develop population trends and gather other important information.
In 2023 a total of 7,728 species were recorded through 334.2 thousand checklists submitted from 253 subregions globally. The US led the way with 197,767 checklists followed by India with 56,131 and Canada with 27,535. This event is not affiliated with or sponsored by Skagit Audubon Society.
