BIRD WALK- GBBC
February 17 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Great Backyard Bird Count at Ann Forster’s backyard, 447 Creary St, Pensacola, FL 32507. 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 192,000 participants submitted their bird observations online, creating the largest instantaneous snapshot of global bird populations ever recorded.
These short bird walks are designed to introduce “future birders” into the world of “Bird Watching.” If you have ever been curious about this activity or just enjoy the birds in your backyard, come join us to learn about our area birds. Families with children are welcome. If you have binoculars bring them. If not, we will have a few ‘loaners’ available. Bug spray, long pants and bottled water is recommended for our outdoor walks. For details, call Scott Rathkamp, 776-9736.
