Experience the beauty of the park in winter while you help collect valuable data, and learn about birds when you participate in this annual event with the National Audubon Society.

The Christmas Bird Count is a citizen-science tradition started by ornithologist Frank Chapman in 1900 and the longest-running  wildlife annual census. The data you collect is used to assess the health of bird populations and guide conservation action in Central Park and beyond.

Each group is led by an experienced birder. Dress warmly and remember to bring your binoculars.
