"If you live within the boundaries of the circle, then you can choose to stay home and report the birds that visit your feeder on the count day," Arrate said. Anyone is welcome to participate in this free activity; organizers just ask that participants contact the designated coordinator beforehand (see sidebar). Beginning birdwatchers are welcome. They can join a group with at least one experienced birder. To help get would-be participants up to speed, Plumas Audubon is offering a free bird identification workshop beforehand (see sidebar). "We will use taxidermy and bird-skin collections, dating back to the 1880s, to practice bird identification skills," Arrate said. Audubon scientists recently used the CBC and BSB datasets, along with climatic data, to model favorable climate conditions for 588 North American bird species. They found that more than half of these species are expected to lose more than 50 percent of their current range by the end of this century due to climate change. These datasets also show that ranges for many North American bird species are already shifting northward, but a recent study from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology suggests that birds might not be shifting fast enough to keep up with the climatic shifts that are occurring, according to the group. Continued contribution by the public to both the CBC and BBS datasets are especially important now to continue to track the movements and behavior of birds in a changing world, Arrate said.
