The Christmas Bird Count this year, sponsored by Western Cuyahoga Audubon, will take place on Sunday, December 26, 2021. Join birders and friends in our Count Circle, called the Lakewood Circle. With COVID still in our midst, precautions take precedence, but being out birding in winter collecting data as part of National Audubon’s “citizen science” program can’t be beat.

Many, many thanks go out to more than 100 birders and friends who helped locate the birds on this list. Whether birding by car, on foot, watching feeders or owling, everyone’s hard work was truly appreciated. Plan ahead and mark your calendar for the Lakewood Circle Christmas Count on Sunday, December 27, 2020.
The Christmas Bird Count information presented here is preliminary. Totals of species have not been included as results are still coming in. A final compilation will be available mid January. Please mark your calendars for the 2020 Christmas Bird Count held on Sunday, December 27, 2020.
The 120th Annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count-Lakewood Circle is Saturday, December 28, 2019.
What a difference a year makes. In 2017 Count Day was noted as being “frigid”, but in 2018 Saturday, December 29 the day was relatively mild with temperatures in the mid to lower 30’s, overcast skies and almost no wind. No snow was on the ground and precipitation was hardly noticeable.
Temperatures were in the high 20’s to low 30’s throughout the day. A 2 inch snowfall on Dec. 29 covered most of the Circle area. Wind was a concern, especially in open areas and along the lakefront, with gusts bringing windchills and high waves on the lake.
