Great Backyard Bird Count: 18-21 February

February 17, 2011

[NOTE: The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual event, occurring over President’s Day weekend. Watch for the announcement next winter.]

Citizen Science Time !… Now is the time of the Great Backyard Bird Count (a joint project of Audubon and Cornell Lab of Ornithology)  … a reminder that February 18th – 21st, 2011, (NOW !) is the time to go to and follow  instructions – count your yard birds, seen from window birds, balcony birds, beach birds, park birds, neighborhood birds – your choice – do it alone, do it with friends, family, pets, have fun!

You never know what you might find in your own back yard!

Last year (the 13th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count) 97,331 lists were submitted, 602 species were counted and 11,233,609 individual birds were counted (which is about 115 plus birds per list – some big some small) – so join the fun ; count birds and share the totals – be a part of something bigger
