2013 Yukon Christmas Bird Count Schedule


“All are welcome — beginners, feeder-watchers, and seasoned field experts! With Christmas Bird Counts scheduled for most Yukon communities, this is an excellent chance to  get out birding this winter and take part in a continent-wide bird monitoring and conservation program. To participate contact the count compiler before count day.”
