Great Backyard Bird Count

The Great Backyard Bird Count is Coming up!


Want a fun activity to do with family and friends?  The great backyard bird count is right around the corner. The fun begins Friday February 17 through Monday February 20. The Great Backyard Bird Count is a four day event that engages bird watchers in counting birds to create a picture of where birds are across the country. All you have to do is tally the largest number of each species you see together at any given time. Reporting your counts is as easy as filling out an online checklist at the GBBC website.  To get your regional tally sheets click on the link below:  Anyone can follow the progress online. Why is this important? Your input helps determine many factors about our feathered friends such as declining numbers. So, get out your binoculars and pack a lunch. Grab your kids and enjoy the great outdoors with The Great Backyard Bird Count! Need Birding supplies? Check these out:
