Christmas Bird Count Event Coming to an End


Christmas Bird Count Event Coming to an End

Few days are left for the conclusion of National Audubon Society's Christmas Bird Count. The event, which was initiated from December 14, 2012, will be carried out till January 5, 2013.

The event requires one to carry out as many birds count as they can in 24 hours. This not only acts as a source of adventure for people or an opportunity for bird lover to watch birds, but it also let scientists know about birds in the US.

A lot of things get clear from the count, and subsequent action is taken accordingly. The National Audubon Society has been given the responsibility to count the figures provided by individuals as well as by groups.

While describing one of the scenes of a bird count group in Northern Virginia, it was found that the group was present on a cold winter morning. There was still dark at that time and they started their smartphone application to open the recording of an Eastern Screech Owl. This helps real owls to get attracted by the voice.

Geoff LeBaron, who heads the National Audubon Society, said that there are people, who travel long distances to do counts. "And it's pretty much the same people doing it the same way in the same areas at the same time of year, every year", said LeBaron.
