The page on Golden Gate Audubon says that volunteers will “find as many bird species as possible.” This obviously isn’t the exact purpose of a proper Christmas Bird Count. Can you please clarify if the project is to find as many species as possible (as part of a fun challenge for a fundraiser), or to do an accurate CBC population survey (for a dataset). Thanks,

> Join Golden Gate Audubon Society’s new Christmas-in-May Bird Counts (CiMBC) on Saturday, May 8th. Find as many bird species as possible in your chosen area… while contributing to community science and generating funds to protect Bay Area birds. This count is on Ebird's Global Big Day, and will use the same area boundaries as the Christmas Bird Count in San Francisco. See details at
