Great Backyard Bird Count
I'm getting ready for The 2011 GBBC will take place Friday, February 18, through Monday, February 21. I've downloaded my Regional checklist; filled my feeders and birdbaths, have my binoculars and bird books handy.
If you don’t know The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages and abilities in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent. You don’t have to be an expert to participate; beginning bird watchers to experts are welcome. It takes as little as 15 minutes on one day, or you can count for as long as you like each day of the event. It’s free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds.
