As a former complier, "count week" birds are useful in planning the
effort for the next count.

Basically it's just a way of feeling better about missing a
species on count day, nothing more.

Audubon defines count week.
Audubon determines how count week birds are recorded.
Species identified as " cw" are not included in the final tally
for the Christmas Bird Count.
While "cw" birds may not be of interest nationally or worldwide,
they are historically significant at more local levels.
The Wayne County, NC Christmas Bird Count will continue to include
count week species.

As far as “count week” species go, I spoke with someone from
National Audubon a few years ago and they use only the actual day
and disregard all others, no matter how unusual or rare. They may
make your list a little bigger, which may be why the idea came
about, but it goes no farther. Ron ClarkKings Mtn. NC From:

CBC Dec 15 The Wayne County, NC Christmas Bird Count will be held
on Saturday, December 15, 2018. Count day will begin at 12:01 am
and run through 11:59 pm. Also, we'd appreciate it if you keep
track of any count week birds in the count circle. Count week is
December 12 - 18. For the CBC, you do not need to count numbers
on any day except for December 15. If you don't already know,
here are examples of how they are recorded: (count week) On Dec
12, you see 1 Bald Eagle, 1 Northern Harrier, and 1 Osprey. (count
day) On Dec 15, you see 3 Bald Eagles, 2 Northern Harriers, and
0 Osprey. (count week) On Dec 17, you see 2 Bald Eagles, 3
Northern Harriers, and 1 Osprey. The official record will show:
Bald Eagle - 3, Northern Harrier - 2, Osprey - cw We welcome new
participants. If you are interested, please contact me. We are
still growing our CBC and can always use more eyes and ears. Mae
