Great Backyard Bird Count

Do you feed birds?  Do you bird watch?  Are you a beginner or an advanced birder? 

If so, I have the event for you.  The Great Backyard Bird Count is Feb 17-20, 2012.  It’s free, fun and easy.

If you have 15 minutes on just one of these days you can participate, or if you are going on a big bird trip you can participate. All you have to do is keep track of the greatest number of each species of bird you see during your 15 minutes or your bird trip.  Then click here  and record your findings.  This data will help scientists to get a picture of what is going on with bird populations.
