Napa County Christmas Bird Count for Kids (copy)

A bird count is set for Dec. 16 in southern Napa County. 

The annual bird count sponsored by the Napa-Solano Audobon Society is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 16.

In 2017, out of 2,420 counts in North America, this bird count ranked 29th in number of spotted species.

Formally known as the Benicia Christmas Bird Count, the event covers a 15-mile diameter circle centered on Interstate 680, which includes southern Napa County.

Participants try to count all of the species seen or heard for a 24-hour period on the 16th in this circle.

This includes any bird feeders within the circle.
