2016 Christmas Bird Count

The Tulsa Audubon Society and Friends of the Oxley Nature Center on Saturday, Dec. 17, will participate in the 117th National Audubon Society Christmas Bird Count, the nation’s longest-running citizen scientist bird project.

For more than 100 years, the data collected by Christmas Bird Count participants has provided a wealth of information to researchers interested in the long-term study of early winter bird populations across North America. More than 200 peer-reviewed articles have resulted from Christmas Bird Count data analysis.

To support the bird count, meet at 8 a.m. on Dec. 17 at the southeast end of the Tulsa Zoo parking lot. Bring a lunch and something to drink, an dress accordingly for weather conditions. Bring binoculars and scopes if you have them. Participants will break for lunch at noon at Oxley.
