Great Backyard Bird Count
It’s time once again for the annual Great Backyard Bird Count. Come try your hand at bird watching while participating in a global event to help track bird migrations. These counts help scientist determine the health, populations, and movement patterns of birds around the world. Here is how to participate:
- Go to Cornell Lab’s eBird website for more information.
- Their Instructions are here: http://gbbc.birdcount.org/about/
- Or go to the Audubon’s website for similar information.
I participated last year and was a fun way to learn more about bird species in your area. No fancy equipment needed. Just grab a pen and paper and start counting.
