Fill your feeders and get ready! The Great Backyard Bird Count kicks off this Friday February 15.
For four days — February 15 through February 18 — you can take part in this easy citizen science project from the comfort of your home. All you need to do is count birds for at least 15 minutes, keep track of the highest number of each species you see, and record your count here.
If you don’t have feeders, you can count birds anywhere. If you photograph birds, submit your pictures for the GBBC Photo Contest.
Count for hours or for as little as 15 minutes. Have fun!
