Christmas Bird Count -  Audubon Christmas Counts fall between December 14 and January 5 inclusive. Count dates for 2019 have yet to be scheduled. Traditionally the Quad City Christmas Count has been the first Sunday of the count period, which this year would be December 15.

Other local count circles include Lost Nation, Clinton/Savanna, Princeton/Camanche, Eastern Mercer County, Western Mercer County, Andalusia, Muscatine and Sterling.
Field Parties are assigned to cover areas within each count circle. To join a field party or to conduct a feeder count within a count circle, contact Kelly McKay at 309-794-5248.
