This week let’s all participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count!
From February 12 through the 15th, join the global effort to watch, count, and celebrate birds. It’s easy. For at least 15 minutes on one (or more) of those days, identify and count the birds you see in your favorite accessible spot. For some, this may be from your own window!
Then, submit your bird list via one of the tools you will find at https://www.birdcount.org/participate/
Data entry remains open until March 1, but should only include birds seen during these four days.
There are many tools available on this site to help you if you are new to birding, including the Merlin Bird ID app for your smartphone.
