Days are short, weather is at or near its coldest, and it’s easy to just suspend birding for a few months and wait for Spring. But that would be missing out on some truly great birding experiences, including Christmas Counts, which many birders consider to be a highlight of their year. We are currently in the middle of the CBC season I welcome two birders who are no strangers to winter weather conditions, ABA Web Developer Greg Neise, of Chicago, Illinois, and Birding editor Ted Floyd of Boulder Colorado, to talk winter birding, Christmas Bird Counts, and more.

Thanks to everyone who made this year a great one. If you enjoy what we do here, please consider making a donation to the ABA’s Year-End Appeal, or joining the ABA.
