All about the Christmas Bird Count:
More than 50,000 observers participate each year in this all-day census of early-winter bird populations. The results of their efforts are compiled into the longest running database in ornithology, representing over a century of unbroken data on trends of early-winter bird populations across the Americas. Simply put, the Christmas Bird Count, or "CBC", is citizen science in action.
 
How is the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) conducted?
Count volunteers follow specified routes through a designated 15-mile (24-km) diameter circle, counting every bird they see or hear all day. It’s not just a species tally—all birds are counted all day, giving an indication of the total number of birds in the circle that day. If observers live within a CBC circle, they may arrange in advance to count the birds at their feeders and submit those data to their compiler. All individual CBC’s are conducted in the period from December 14 to January 5 (inclusive dates) each season, and each count is conducted in one calendar day.
 
Loess Hills Audubon Members participate in several CBC's each year and some serve as the count compiler. Listed below are results of some of those counts.

The 119th CBC was held from December 14th 2018 thru January 5th 2019. Information and results of that count are shown below.

Sioux City CBC= Saturday, December 15, 2018. Contact Jerry Probst at: probsthoney@aol.com or 712-490-8256 for information. Plan to eat lunch and assess progress at noon at Culver’s on Singing Hills. At 5:00pm we meet at Jerry's house to eat the mandatory chili and other goodies and compile the results. Jerry’s address is: 3817 Park Place in South Sioux City, NE.

The Sioux City CBC was held as scheduled. It was a beautiful day with clear skies and temps ranging from 18 to 42 with little wind. 23 birders found 63 species and counted a total of 12,152 birds. Highlights included Great Blue Heron, Belted Kingfisher and Red-headed Woodpecker. The compilation at Jerry’s house was preceded with chili and soup and other delicious goodies. A listing of the species counted can be seen below.

Westfield CBC= Thursday, December 20, 2018. Plan to arrive at Zales mailbox at 15384 North Ridge Road at 8:00 am and we will divide into groups and “bird” until 1:00 pm when we will serve a hearty and hot lunch at our home and tabulate our group counts. Those wanting to bird afterwards may do so. Contact Dotty Zales at 712-540-0952 or zales66@hotmail.com for more information.

The Westfield CBC was held as scheduled. Temperatures were in the lower 30’s with cloudy skies and windy conditions. 10 birders recorded 42 species and counted 6841 birds. Highlights included Belted Kingfisher, Sharp-shinned Hawk, Cooper’s Hawk, Merlin, Eastern Screech Owl, Eastern Bluebird, and a male Purple Finch which came to the Zale’s feeder to join us for lunch! The delicious lunch of Chili, Chicken Noodle Soup, and numerous other treats, desserts, and beverages really hit the spot after a cold morning in the field! A listing of the species seen and counted can be found below.

Ponca State Park CBC= Friday, December 14, 2018. Those interested in participating should meet at the Park’s Resource Center at 7:30 that morning or call Bill Huser at 712-574-3107 for more information.

The Ponca State Park CBC was held as scheduled on December 14, 2018. Ponca State Park had a very successful Christmas Bird Count this year. We had 12 people divided into 5 teams participate. We added four new species to the cumulative Christmas bird count list for Ponca State Park; Pied-billed Grebe, Trumpeter Swans, Snowy Owl, and Yellow-headed Blackbird. The total bird count for our group was 3268 individuals and 53 species. The most numerous bird was Red-winged Blackbirds at 1500 individuals. Other species that were high in numbers included Canada Goose, Mallards, and America Tree Sparrows. This year there were noticeable fewer Screech Owls(1) and more Great Horned Owls(5). Many of the locations where we had recorded Screech Owls in the past had Great Horned Owls present. In the future we hope to locate more habitat to record Screech Owls and continue to find new species in our circle. The birders enjoyed a delicious lunch of Soup and other goodies at the Park’s Resource Center at noon. A listing of the species seen and counted can be found below.

Ida County CBC=Saturday, January 5, 2019. Our Christmas Bird Count is set for January 5, starting at 7:30 a.m. at the Education Center in Moorehead Park. Dinner at 12 p.m. until 1:30 or so, if you are running late getting back from your areas. Wrap-up and adding up the numbers starts at 3:30 or so. Hope to see all of you and our thanks in advance. Contact Don Poggensee at donpog@netllc.net or 712-369-3454.

The Ida County CBC was held as scheduled on 1-05-2019. We had a great day for our count with a total of 40 species found and 1,872 birds counted. With great weather at 58 degrees, sunny, and calm conditions, the birds seemed to be scattered in the open fields. Highlights included Great Blue Heron, Wilson’s Snipe, Long-eared Owl, Short-eared Owl, Northern Saw-whet Owl, Belted Kingfisher, Merlin, Brown Creeper, Purple Finch and Common Redpoll. A special thanks to the 15 counters, Danielle for her great help, & with the food, as well as Synda. My thanks to all of you for a great day. Eleven people got to see our Saw-whet Owl, found after three tries to locate one. Four of the eleven people had never seen a Saw-whet Owl before, and now could add it to their life list. As a note, last year we had a total of 54 species and 7,752 total birds. With great weather, usually the birds are indeed scattered and hard to locate and our results today show that in our totals. The counters enjoyed a lunch of chili, brownies and other goodies around noon. A listing of the species counted can be seen below.

Yankton CBC= Sunday, December 16, 2018. Contact Roger Dietrich at 605-660-6247 for information.

The Yankton CBC was held as scheduled. Thirty people participated in the 2018 Christmas Bird Count in Yankton on a beautiful day, Sunday, December 16, 2018. Twenty-one people worked as field observers while nine counted birds at their feeders. People who worked the count came from Vermillion, Armour, Sioux Falls, Pickstown, and Yankton, South Dakota; Sioux City, Iowa; and South Sioux City and Wayne, Nebraska. The group found a total of 79 species of birds. The highest species count was 82 in 2012 followed by 80 in 2013.

 

Highlights of the day were Barrow’s Goldeneye recorded for the first time since the count started in 1916. Northern Saw-whet Owls recorded for the second time, Long-eared Owls and Ross’s Goose for the third time, Fox Sparrow for the fourth time, Greater Scaup for the fifth time; and Prairie Falcon for the sixth time.
