Join birdwatchers for an incredible day of winter birding. On December 25, 1900, about 18,500 individual birds were counted by 27 participants in 25 different sites. In total, 89 species were counted in the sites ranging from Toronto, Ontario to Pacific Grove California. Since that first census, the Christmas Bird Count, as it is now known, has taken place every year, with thousands of volunteers conducting counts in over 2000 different locations throughout the Western Hemisphere.
