Our regional activities

Beyond our local, urban home, Seattle Audubon participates in a diverse array of regional initiatives and projects to support birds across the Pacific Flyway and beyond.

Puget Sound Seabird Survey

The Puget Sound Seabird Survey (PSSS) is a community science program managed by Seattle Audubon that trains volunteer birdwatchers to gather valuable data on wintering seabird populations in Puget Sound, Strait of Juan de Fuca, and waters surrounding the San Juan Islands. 

Christmas Bird Count

Established in 1900, the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is the longest running community science survey in North American. Seattle Audubon has been coordinating the Seattle CBC for over 90 years. On a single chosen day in December, approximately 250 volunteers survey the 15-mile diameter count circle, centered in downtown Seattle, to identify and count anything with feathers and a pulse.
