Participant Fee:

Beginning 2012/2013 there will be no fee for participating in the Christmas Bird Count. This is a policy change that applies to all CBC's throughout the world. The governing body decided to stop collecting this fee because it has been an impediment to participation. But there are still costs for running the program. Therefore, donations are always welcome.
