There are several ways you can participate in the activities of the Tucson Bird Count and help further the goal of making Tucson a more bird friendly community.
You can participate in the annual and quarterly bird counts that are part of the long term study of bird distributions in Tucson. The data that has been collected from this ongoing study that began in 2001 is what provides the information for the recommendations to enhance urban habitat in Tucson to make it more useful to native birds.
All of us can help to share our space in Tucson with native birds by incorporating the recommendations for creating and enhancing bird habitat in our yards, neighborhoods and communities. Whether you help with one or both, you are helping to make Tucson a better place for birds and providing habitat that would otherwise have been lost to them.
TBC's Route Program is unlike other surveys. Every year, TBC participants count individuals of all bird species at hundreds of sites across the Tucson area.
