14th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count

The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent and in Hawaii. This is a great event for citizen scientists and their families help the researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society learn more about how the birds are doing—and how to protect them and the environment we share. You can report your findings at www.birdcount.org.  This year the event will be held from February 18 - 21, 2011.
