Every winter for 50 consecutive years, volunteers have scoured a 15-mile diameter circle in the Peterborough-Hancock area for birds as part of the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) – the largest and longest-running community science project in the world. In addition to the teams who fan out in the field, birds are also tallied at backyard feeders.
Every February, people around the world count birds in their neighborhoods as part of the Great Backyard Bird Count — an annual survey that helps scientists better understand global bird populations. Join the fun by counting at the Harris Center bird feeders with our Bird Conservation Director, Phil Brown.
