The 2013 Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) will take place Friday, February 15, through Monday, February 18. Please join us for the 16th annual count!
The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual 4-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are.
Everyone is welcome--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. Participants tally the number of individual birds of each species they see during their count period. They enter these numbers on the GBBC website. This is just one more way citizen science is changing the way bird populations are monitored throughout the United States and around the world.
