Every December, hundreds of Bay Area birders take part in Golden Gate Audubon’s Christmas Bird Counts (CBCs). From before dawn until dusk, they trek through parks, neighborhoods, and wetlands, venture out in boats on the bay, and skirt reservoirs and bayside mudflats to identify the species and count the number of birds at every site.
Spend a fun day outdoors with a team counting individual birds and species, and contributing to our understanding of bird populations! Both beginners and experienced birders welcome. The new Richmond count circle covers Richmond and adjacent areas including Point Pinole, Point Molate, and the Miller-Knox Shoreline.
