Instead of shooting down birds, bird enthusiasts will instead count them for the 115th consecutive year, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Birders of all ages can participate in the Christmas Bird Count, which includes more than 2,300 regional counts between Dec. 14 and Jan. 5 throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America and South America.

Here’s how it works: Each year, local counts within in the same 15 mile radius are planned. A designated compiler receives reports from local participants, who can bird for as long as they’d like. The National Audubon Society then collects the data to study trends.
