-Wild Creek-Little Gap Christmas Bird Count (centered around Kunkletown)-December 20

-Bethlehem-Easton-Hellertown Christmas Bird Count (centered around Bethlehem)-December 26

-Merrill Creek Christmas Bird Count (centered around Merrill Creek, NJ, but encompasses parts of Pennsylvania)-December 27
