Santa Barbara County Christmas Bird Count Information

Every year, around the time of Christmas, people all over the nation and many other countries go out on their chosen day to count their local birds. If you are looking for previous years results, take a look at Audubon’s National CBC web page. You can also view California’s CBCs at the Nature Alley page.
