Climate Watch will feel a little different this year

Climate Watch will feel a little different this year

January 15- February 15, 2021

Climate Watch is Audubon’s biannual community science program that enlists volunteer bird-lovers across North America to tally vulnerable bird species-our winter session begins January 15 and runs through February 15, 2021.

Counting and documenting where birds are today and how they’re responding to a shifting climate is essential to helping protect them tomorrow. That’s why even in these uncertain times, we’ve arranged a way to safely continue our work.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Winter 2021 survey period of Climate Watch will require a few changes. So, whether you’ve counted in the past or are looking for a new way to use your birding skills to support climate research, all participants must follow these guidelines to safely conduct the survey.

You don’t have to be an expert birder to participate, but knowing how to identify the target species by sight or sound is a big plus. Find a coordinator in your area or click here to get started. We need your help to create a brighter future for the birds we all love this winter.
