Christmas Bird Count For Kids

Inspired by the well-loved, traditional Christmas Bird Count, the CBC4Kids engages new generations of young birders across North America.


CBC4Kids events and outings are coordinated locally by naturalist or community groups, or at schools, throughout December and January. Findings are submitted through an online checklist and reported to Nature Counts and eBird Canada, where they can be used in scientific research.

COVID-19 and CBC4Kids

Safety is of top concern. Please use your best judgment for a COVID-safe CBC4Kids by complying with all current public health guidelines for your area. If restrictions for your region are imposed after you have decided to run a COVID-Safe CBC4Kids, it should be cancelled.
