#GBBC: Fun things to do with the kids at home

Looking for some fun things to do with the kids?..

Join Us for the Next Great Backyard Bird Count, February 12-15, 2016

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1. Register for the count or use your existing login name and password. If you have never participated in the Great Backyard Bird Count, you’ll need to create a new account.

2. Count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the GBBC. You can count for longer than that if you wish! Count birds at home or at a park—one day, two days, or all four days. Submit a separate checklist for each new day, for each new location, or for the same location if you counted at a different time of day. Estimate the number of individuals of each species you saw during your count period.

3. Enter your results on the GBBC website by clicking “Submit Observations” on the home page. Or download the free eBird Mobile app to enter data on a mobile device.

Now get ready to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count because when it comes to watching birds, kids count!
