2014 Christmas Bird Count - Recap

This year's Aspen area Audubon Christmas Bird Count was a successful and enjoyable day for the 15+ participants who helped census local birds within the designated 15-mile diameter circle in which our local count takes place. After nearly 3 weeks of warm, sunny weather, count day brought a return to winter. The day was cloudy with light-to-moderate snow falling off and on. This type of weather causes some of the birds to hunker down. Thus, our count results were a bit lower than other years when weather was more favorable to bird activity.

ACES is mapping local bird feeders for the Audubon Christmas Bird Count in the Aspen area! Because birds tend to gather at food sources such as back yard feeders, knowing the locations of local feeders will enable us to gather the most accurate data for the Aspen area count.
