Fill up your bird feeders and dust off your binoculars!
The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is Feb. 16-19.
Participate from your backyard, or take a stroll through your neighborhood.  
Join bird enthusiasts around the globe in counting birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count, then enter your checklist of birds at birdcount.org. Find full instructions and bird identification tips at birdcount.org.
This year’s GBBC is particularly special as 2018 is the Year of the Bird, a celebration of birds and a call-to-action for people to help birds in simple yet meaningful ways.
Participating in this count is one simple thing you can do this month to help birds. Your checklist will provide data on bird populations, which scientists use to track changes that have occurred since the GBBC first began over 20 years ago.
