Last season's Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is in the record books and the upcoming 108th Christmas Bird Count has begun, the field season for which began on Friday, December 14th, 2007 and runs through Saturday, January 5th, 2008. Please remember that the dates of the CBC period every season run from 14 December to 5 January; the count period was expanded and permanently set to these dates after the 100th Count.

Meanwhile, the 107th Christmas Bird Count summary issue of American Birds went to press in October, with articles including the release of the 2007 WatchList and a feature by Scott Weidensaul on how Christmas Bird Count results may help us track birds as they respond to global climate change. Other features highlight unique experiences and sightings during CBCs in Iowa and Ohio, as well as how CBC data help our understanding of the status of introduced doves in Florida. Additionally, as is the tradition the complete overall and Regional Summaries from all areas are included, with many photos submitted by compilers and participants.

Mason, Manistee, Lake and Oceana Counties are conducting their counts on January 5.
