CACT is National Audubon Society's designation for the Cheep Thrills Christmas Bird Count. It stands for "California Cheep Thrills."
2021 Cheep Thrills count - Thursday, December 16
It was a sunny, calm day for our Christmas Bird Count this year. We had 71 volunteers in the field and together they observed 155 species, including one new species for this circle: a Swainson's Hawk seen by Mary Anne Flett and her team from Avocet Research. The total number of birds we observed was 42,888.
The chart below shows you how our 2021 totals compare to the previous 10 years (since we restarted the count). Note that in 2016 the numbers were lower because the weather was miserable; it rained heavily all day long and several flash flood alerts were issued.

We will not be holding a compilation dinner in 2021.
