Join Sharon Audubon Center and discover the magic of winter birding through bird counting. This program will be a fun and active introduction to the Christmas Bird Count and Project Feederwatch community science initiatives that take place each winter through rambles on parts of our sanctuary property and nearby sites. Participants will learn to take data through hands-on experience, learn field markings for resident and migratory species, and (hopefully!) be encouraged to join our staff and route captains for the Trixie Strauss Christmas Bird Count.
