Bird count by Bighorn Audubon Society

Each year Bighorn Audubon Society participates in the International Migratory Bird Day Spring Bird Count, created in 1993 at the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. The count is similar to Audubon’s Christmas Bird Count but is conducted on one day each year:  the second Saturday in May in the U.S. and Canada, and in October in Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. The goal of the Count is to get a snapshot of the movement of Neotropical migratory birds  –  a bird that spends the summer in its breeding range in North America but migrates to Latin America, Mexico, and the Caribbean for its nonbreeding range in winter. It is the only international education program that focuses on the migration of nearly 350 species of migratory birds between nesting habitats in North America and non-breeding grounds in Latin America, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
