The Friends of the Pawnee National Grassland and National Audubon Society invites birdwatchers to participate in the longest-running community science survey, the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC). On December 21, 2019 (Saturday), birders and nature enthusiasts in Nunn, Colorado will take part in this tradition, many rising before dawn to participate. The Friends of the Pawnee National Grassland is the compiler for our 53rd year of the Nunn Christmas Bird Count. It’s an exciting time for us and a chance for us to contribute to science. Then on December 28, 2019 (Saturday), The Friends group will hold the FIRST EVER Pawnee National Grassland-East Christmas Bird Count! It’s an exciting time for us and a chance for us to contribute even more to science.
To sign up for the Nunn Christmas Bird Count and/or Pawnee National Grassland-East Christmas Bird Count, please visit/contact http://www.friendsofthepawneegrassland.org/, Gary Lefko aka the “Nunn Guy”, at firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to visit for more details.
This year, the Audubon Christmas Bird Count will mobilize more than 72,000 volunteer bird counters in more than 2,500 locations across the Western Hemisphere. The Audubon Christmas Bird Count utilizes the power of volunteers to track the health of bird populations at a scale that scientists could never accomplish alone. Data compiled in Nunn and Stoneham, Colorado, will document every individual bird and bird species seen in a specified area, contributing to a vast community science network that continues a tradition stretching back more than 100 years.
