North American Migratory Bird Count


Boyce Mayview Park and Wingfield Pines, Upper St. Clair, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania

The results of this count are combined with other counts in Allegheny County and Pennsylvania and are forwarded to the National Audubon Society to be included in their international spring migration count. This information is useful in helping determine bird population changes, geographic shifts and changes of migratory patterns of species.

Watch this web site for information about the Pittsburgh South Hills Bird Circle Christmas Bird Count, coming in December. If you are interested in learning more about birds and how to identify them, watch for news of our birding classes or join us on a birding hike.
