At the first Annual Bird Census (ABC) in 1986, we recorded nearly 6,000 birds from 129 species. In 2017, we had 5,682 birds from 138 species at 23 sites, lower than the 28-year mean of 8,471 birds from 149 species. Indeed, trends for abundance and diversity have shown declines. Such data have helped NSS in our conservation proposals, in assessing the state of our natural habitats and in mapping out population trends. Building on this legacy, the 33rd ABC will take place at many important bird areas. We invite volunteers with birdwatching experience to join us in counting birds. Help a site leader near your home or anywhere else.
