2020 will mark the 3rd year of the count's rebirth following the end of DC Audubon Society's [DCAS] sponsorship of the count in 2016.  DCAS began the count in the late 1990s as a mid-winter birding survey of the entire 184 miles of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park [https://www.nps.gov/choh/index.htm].

Every year there are far flung areas in Washington & Allegany counties that lack coverage.  This year is no different.  Detailed information for all aspects of the count are available upon request.
