Audubon Christmas Bird Count

Event Details

Audubon Christmas Bird Count hosted by the Hilton Head Audubon Society at various locations on Hilton Head and Daufuskie Islands, parts of Bluffton and local waterways to count every bird seen in a 15-mile diameter circle. In 2016, there were 2,500 count circles in the Western Hemisphere. Captains of our 18 areas are putting their teams together. We always welcome new participants. You do not have to be an accomplished birder. It is a fun day, even if sometimes the weather does not cooperate. Enjoy exploring our beautiful habitat and sharing the wonder of finding our feathered friends with your neighbors and fellow birding enthusiasts. You can also participate from the comfort of home by being one of our Feeder Watchers. For details and participation information, email Susan Murphy at or visit
