...And I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to do a SeaBC during a CBC.  All Connecticut coastal counts Greenwich-Stamford, Westport, Stratford-Milford, New Haven, Old Lyme, New London) would benefit immensely from boating birders.

Go SeaBC Birding with a Boater this December!

Have a friend with a seaworthy sailboat, sportfish or trawler? Convince them to take you out for a sail or motor for the inaugural "SeaBC" Sea Bird Count! It’s like a Christmas Bird Count (CBC) or backyard bird count, but where you count birds at sea. Choose your weather day in December and count all the birds you see for a few hours or an entire day.

The SeaBC was created to raise awareness among boaters from around the world to record their seabird observations. The organizers are a group of long-distance sailors from around the world who are also birders. Several of the cruising rallies (such as the ARC, Caribbean 1500 and Baja Ha-Ha) are encouraging participation by their fleet boats.

The central clearinghouse for the data will be Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s eBird website.

For additional information and tally sheets, go to Facebook.com/Birding.Aboard and select "SeaBC/Resources", or email info <at> birdingaboard.com.

You may be a landlubber, but if you know birds, team up with a boating friend to add to the count! Or count from this winter's yacht charter or cruise!
