Jordan River Christmas Bird Count

Fields Trips
Jan 01, 2024


Get your 2024 Utah state bird list off to a great start by joining us for the Jordan River Christmas Bird Count on Monday, January 1, 2024. This count circle is centered at Point of the Mountain on the Utah-Salt Lake County boundary lines and I-15. Originally established by Joe Leigh, this circle has been birded every year since 1987. 

The circle is divided into 8 teams: Saratoga, Jordan River, Alpine, Herriman, Draper, Lehi, Thanksgiving Point, and Jordan River-Arrow. Team leaders are each assigned a section to bird. They invite birders to join their team, they establish start and end times, and report data. 

In mid-December, I will reach out to last year’s team leaders to ask for their participation this year. If you are interested in being a team leader, let me know. If you want to join a specific team, let me know. And if you want to observe birds at your backyard bird feeder (it has to be within the count circle boundaries), let me know. 

Thank you ahead of time for your continued support. Please direct questions to me:
