The Great Backyard Bird Count is back! The big count takes place from Februray 18 – 21, 2011. The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent. Anyone can participate, from beginning bird watchers to experts. 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!
Visit the event website to get helpful tips to make your backyard bird counting a success. You’ll also find information on how to submit your personal bird count and will be able to participate in a photo contest too!
