2 HISTORY OF THE CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT FOR KIDS The first Christmas Bird Count for Kids was established in 2007 in Sonoma Valley, California by Tom Rusert and Darren Peterie of Sonoma Birding ( The CBC4Kids was designed to engage a new cohort of young naturalists and birdwatchers. This successful annual event is now conducted across North America. Bird Studies Canada has been the proud Canadian partner in this exciting Citizen Science program since EVENT BASICS Like the traditional Christmas Bird Count ( the CBC4Kids gathers birdwatchers for a day of regional bird counts and provides valuable winter bird population data for bird conservation. The CBC4Kids also includes some instruction on Bird Identification, Binocular Basics, and Birdwatching Tips. The pre-count mini-workshops prepare young and new participants for an enjoyable birding experience. After the introduction and presentations, experienced birders lead small birding teams (4-6 youth participants and their parents) on birding excursions for 1-2 hours. Following the count, all teams gather to tally bird count data and share their groups highlights. The results are submitted to ebird Canada at ORGANIZE YOUR EVENT IN SIX EASY STEPS! 1.
