Great Backyard Birdcount, (www.birdcount.org)
You are welcome to join in this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count, February 16-19.
You can bird anytime within the 4-day period and as many times as you want. Here are easy steps to help make you a citizen scientist.
First, count birds anywhere you like for at least 15 minutes. List all the species you see and the number of each species found during the period you observe.
If you have large flocks then offer your best guess at the total number.
Next, go to www.birdcount.org and click on the submit observations tab. You can create your own eBird account or log in by using your “eBird” user name and password.
Last year during the GBBC over 180,000 checklists were submitted and over 6,200 species were globally counted.
Please participate and be a part of this year’s count.
