Bird Counts

Join us!
Club Contacts
Many of our members participate in National Audubon Society Christmas Bird Counts, and we sponsor one in the Slidell area (northeast of New Orleans).

Here are the results from the last Slidell count.

And here is a page with more information about the Northshore counts.

Our web nerd has created several resources using Google® Maps™ to generate user-friendly maps. Try 'em out!
