Join the Great Backyard Bird Count

Bird and nature fans throughout North America are invited to join tens of thousands of everyday bird watchers for the 14th annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), February 18-21, 2011.

A joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society, this free event is an opportunity for families, students, and people of all ages to discover the wonders of nature in backyards, schoolyards, and local parks, and, at the same time, make an important contribution to conservation. Participants learn more about the count, and report their sightings online at www.birdcount.org.
