Join us for this year's Benicia Christmas Bird Count - CBC on Monday, December 14th. (NSAS Event)

Details:

The Benicia Christmas Bird Count was started in 1930 by Emerson Stoner. Since 1971 Napa Solano Audubon has been running it. Robin Leong is our long-time coordinator who helps our 75-100 participants cover our 15 mile circle. Our circle area includes the communities of Benicia, East Vallejo, Cordelia, and West Suisun City as well as parts of Grizzly Island and Grizzly Bay. We typically observe 160 - 175 species and since it's inception we have recorded 233 species. We even sometimes lead the nation in the number of Black Rails and Virginia Rails counted!
