Join the Great Backyard Bird Count


Cornell University's Ornithological Lab invites birders from around the world to join in the Great Backyard Bird Count from Feb. 12-15.
Go to www.birdcount.org to register and find information about how to participate.
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 in as many places and on as many days as you like - 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.
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.
The website includes a pdf with plenty of helpful tips on how to participate.
