Central Loudoun Christmas Bird Count 2017 registration now open! Join the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy and participate in the National Audubon Society’s annual #ChristmasBirdCount on December 28th. Begun in 1899, these surveys are held all over North America, with the results used to better understand bird populations and dynamics. Our count circle has a 15-mile diameter and covers 177 square miles of Loudoun’s countryside; north to Waterford, south to Aldie, east to Ashburn, and west to Purcellville.

Everyone is welcome; amateurs are teamed with experienced birders. If you are interested in participating for just a couple of hours or for the entire day, register online here or contact Joe Coleman at [email protected] or 540-554-2542.
