Bird watchers delighted in a community bird count on Dec. 15, as Carpinteria participated in the annual Audubon Society Christmas Bird Count, held in different cities throughout several countries and across several dates. First held on Christmas Day in 1900, the “Christmas Bird Census” has involved tens of thousands of volunteers over the years. When combined with other surveys, the Christmas count provides a picture of how the continent’s bird populations have changed over the past 100 years.
