People who care about birds can change the world

From Michigan to Mongolia, bird watchers from more than 100 countries are expected to participate in the annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), the second weekend in February.

Anyone anywhere in the world can count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count days and enter their sightings at www.BirdCount.org.

The information gathered by tens of thousands of volunteers helps track the health of bird populations at a scale that would not otherwise be possible. The GBBC is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society with Wild Birds Unlimited, as a sponsor!

The Great Backyard Bird Count is a great way for people of all ages and backgrounds to connect with nature and make a difference for birds. It’s free and easy. To learn more about how to join the count visit www.birdcount.org.
