Default Great Backyard Bird Count



This month you have the opportunity to participate in the Twelfth Annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) which links citizens with scientist in an effort to collect important data about backyard birds.

The GBBC is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society.



Don't forget to count the birds February 13-16!
Count for FUN! Count for the FUTURE!


It's easy to participate


1. Visit www.birdcount.org for easy-to-follow instructions, including tips for identifying bird species.Download the checklist for your area.

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

3. After at least 15 minutes of watching in one place, report your results online at www.birdcount.org. (You can 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. You can also visit other locations and submit separate tallies for those areas as well.

Now in its 12th year, the Great Backyard Bird Count attempts to obtain a snapshot of bird activity throughout North America. Scientists use the information gathered to study bird population trends and migration patterns. Researchers combine the data collected nationwide and use it to help with bird conservation efforts.

I thought this one was going to be a goof. Willie. Lol

Do turkeys count cause i got hundreds of em around here?
The bird i see most is a blue jay. I see dozens of em. I once saw a giant woodpecker blasting up one of the trees. What a number it did on the tree. I havent seen it since. It had to be over a foot and a half tall. I found the son of a gun here http://www.birds.cornell.edu/AllAbou...ecker_dtl.html
Eagles - herons - hawks and turkey buzzards.
Even black squirrells and albinos too.
Some dumb ass shot an eagle and got busted for it.

Nope, amazing but its legit! It's fun to do especially if you got kids and an admiration for feathered critters.
Me and my daughter make count at our bird feeders here at the house and even take a stroll out at our local state park for a head count with weather permitting.

I'm not real sure Jim. I would think they would qualify. I do know the jays & pileated woodpeckers do.

He should be flogged, then hung by his balls in my opinion
