The 102nd Christmas Bird Count was a resounding success—a record number of Counts were conducted, and another new record was set for number of participants. From the arctic of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska and two counts in Nunavut, Canada to the oceans south of Tierra del Fuego, CBC participants prowled the Western Hemisphere in search of avian delights, counting every bird uncovered on the way.
