Thousands of Volunteers Arrive as Bird Count Begins

Thousands of Volunteers Arrive as Bird Count Begins

As part of the longest-running citizen science program in the world, which includes counting the fowl in communities, thousands of volunteers gathered on Saturday into the wilds, a recent report has uncovered.

As per the findings, the program has been organized by the National Audubon Society, which aims at helping scientists in examining the health of bird species. It is for the 13th time that that annual Christmas Bird Count has begun and it would be coming up with annual census of bird populations.

San Jose and all other communities are seeing thousands of people willing to accomplish this job. Scientists would also be able to guide conservation efforts following the same, the report says. Volunteers did not even mind the mud in San Jose's Santa Teresa County Park, which is rain-drenched.

It has been told by the Audubon Society that California had some 5,787 people marching some 7,400 miles last year. The report then said, “A stilt sandpiper seen in San Jose was the only such species found anywhere other than the south end of the Salton Sea”. Conducted on Dec. 25, 1900, the count was the first one. The event this year has begun on December 14 and would go through January 5.

It is being hoped to raise some 63,000 bird spotters across over 2,200 areas, the report finds.
