Great Backyard Bird Count
February 15 - February 18Free
The Great Backyard Bird Count is February 15-18 this year. To do the GBBC, please count birds anytime from Feb 15-18, any place you would like. “Backyard” means anywhere, not just in your own backyard, but throughout your neighborhood, in parks, and your favorite birding spots. The main idea is to get out and find the birds, then enter your counts online using the GBBC website and eBird. This is a good chance to become familiar with eBird, an excellent online resource that birders use to share bird observations. For more information about the GBBC and to register for the count, go to http://gbbc.birdcount.org.
The Great Backyard Bird Count is led by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, with Bird Studies Canada and many international partners. The Great Backyard Bird Count is powered by eBird. The count is made possible in part by founding sponsor Wild Birds Unlimited.
