From December 14 through January 5 tens of thousands of volunteers throughout the Americas take part in an adventure that has become a family tradition among generations. Families and students, birders and scientists, armed with binoculars, bird guides and checklists go out on an annual mission - often before dawn. For over one hundred years, the desire to both make a difference and to experience the beauty of nature has driven dedicated people to leave the comfort of a warm house during the Holiday season.
The Indiana Audubon Society compiles information from over 50 counts throughout our state. The data is compiled and published in the Indiana Audubon Quarterly. In addition, IAS provides downloadable data to members.
