The West Yellowstone Christmas Bird Count is today. If you are out recreating in the West Yellowstone and Hebgen Lake areas, stop in the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone for details.
Enjoy a day of birding the these areas, you can participate by car, snowmobile, skis or snowshoes. If you don’t want to get cold you can still participate by identifying and counting the number and species of birds at your bird feeder.
The Grizzly and Wold Discovery Center in West Yellowstone and the Sacajawea Audubon Society (in Bozeman) put on this event. Each of the citizen scientists who annually braves snow, wind, or rain, to take part in the Christmas Bird Count make an enormous contribution to conservation. Audubon and other organizations use data collected in this longest-running wildlife census to assess the health of bird populations – and to help guide conservation action. This will be the 114th year the count has been conducted.
