Feeder Watchers Wanted: If you live within a Count Circle, you can participate by watching and counting the birds at your feeder. Contact Alan McCoy for the Spokane CBC or Sandy Schreven for the Cheney CBC to see if your location is within the count area.

Participant Fee: Beginning 2012/2013 there will be no fee for participating in the Christmas Bird Count. This is a policy change that applies to all CBC's throughout the world. The governing body decided to stop collecting this fee because it has been an impediment to participation. But there are still costs for running the program. Therefore, donations are always welcome.
All participants can pre-register online. Online pre-registration will close 48 hours before count day. Registering online saves the compiler a lot of time.
