Calling all bird watchers - volunteers are needed for Friday's Eastern Alameda County Christmas Bird Count.

The Ohlone Audubon Society and the Alameda Creek Alliance will lead volunteers in counting birds within a 15 mile radius in Pleasanton, Sunol and Livemore.

They're promoting bird conservation through improved habitat and assessing trends in winter bird populations.

Fifteen other counts will take place in other Bay Area locations this year.
