GREAT BACKYARD BIRD COUNT
February 16 - February 19
Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) celebrates the diversity of birds across America. It was also the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time. Researchers at Cornell and the National Audubon Society will use the data we collect. For information about the GBBC see their website at birdcount.org. You can help out by counting birds for as little as 15 minutes!
