The Great Backyard Bird Count This Weekend

The 2013 Great Backyard Bird Count will take place this Friday, February 15, through Monday, February 18.

This annual four-day event 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.

This is a great activity for families to do together, as well as engage young people in learning about their shared environment with birds.
