GREAT BACKYARD BIRD COUNT
February 17 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Each year, Cornell Ornithology Lab and the Audubon Society sponsors the Great Backyard Bird Count.
Anyone can take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, from beginning bird watchers to experts, and you can participate by joining us at Ann’s backyard on Pensacola Bay.
Each checklist submitted during the GBBC helps researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society learn more about how birds are doing, and how to protect them and the environment we share.
Last year, more than 160,000 participants submitted their bird observations online, creating the largest instantaneous snapshot of global bird populations ever recorded.
New Requirement—All participants in published events and excursions must sign a Release and Indemnification Form which is valid through 2019. Leaders will have forms for those who have not yet signed one.
