Nokesville Christmas Bird Count

December 23rd, 2018 12:00 AM – 11:59 PM
Location: Merrimac Farm Wildlife Management Area, Deepwood Lane 15014, Nokesville, Virginia, United States
Category: Nature Walk

With the holiday season upon us, it will soon be time for the 116th Christmas Bird Count, led by the National Audubon Society. The Nokesville Count, sponsored by Prince William Conservation Alliance, covers a 15-mile diameter circle centered on Merrimac Farm WMA.

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP to join a survey team. Contact PWCA at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 703-490-5200.

There are three different ways you can help!

1. Identify and count birds in the field (beginning birders welcome). Birders join a team that covers a defined sector within the count area. Teams meet up at 7:00am at a location within their sector. Most teams pause midday for a hot lunch at Merrimac Farm.

2. Identify and count birds in your backyard (if you live in the Nokesville Circle Boundaries)

3. Prepare and/or serve food to cold and hungry birders at the Merrimac Farm Stone House beginning at 11:00am.

This is a great opportunity to see the variety of birds that live in your area in winter months. Join them for a fun day and be a part of the oldest and largest citizen science project in the world.
