Kansas Christmas Bird Counts, 2021 - 2022

Please contact the compiler for all details. If you have dates to add or information to change, or questions in general regarding these counts, please contact Chuck Otte at cotte@twinvalley.net. If additional details have been provided, follow the link from the count name. If no details are indicated, contact the compiler! Starting in 2018, KOS has set standard dates that won't change from year to year. Those dates are December 12 to January 12. (Please note that a few non-Kansas (but very close) CBCs are included in this list!)

If you've never participated in a Christmas Bird Count, here's some quick information about what they are and what to expect.

Because of complications and safety concerns with COVID-19 if there is no meeting information on the table below, please contact the compiler in advance for details and assignments of locations. KOS encourages all participants to use safety precautions (face masks, social distancing, vaccinations) to reduce the risk of infection.

Compilers - Forms have been emailed to the compilers. If you have not received your forms, please contact Chuck!
