Great Backyard Bird Count begins today -help the Audubon Society

ONLY TAKES 15 MINUTES

Count For Fun, Count For the Future:
The 12th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count is Feb 13-16th!

It’s time once again for the Great Backyard Bird Count, sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society. Will bird watchers outdo themselves again this year and surpass last year’s all-time record? Participants had identified an unprecedented 634 species and sent in thousands of stunning bird images from around the continent.

How to Participate


1. Visit www.birdcount.org for easy to follow instructions, tips for identifying birds species, and to download a checklist for your area.

2. Count the birds wherever you choose to count. Write down the highest number of individuals you see at one time to avoid counting any bird twice.

3. After at least 15 minutes of watching in one place, report your results at www.birdcount.org. You can always spend more time observing if you prefer.

4. You can repeat your count at the same place on each day of the Great Backyard Bird Count, or visit other locations and submit separate tallies for those as well.
