The Great Back Yard Bird Count
Just a heads up for those of you who may be interested. The "Great Back Yard Bird Count" will take place this weekend, from February 15th thru February 18th. It's easy, no special knowledge required. You just count as much, or as little, as you want. You can count one day, or all four and from one location or from several, if you would like.
This year, for the first time, it will be international, with counts accepted from anywhere in the world. It's fun, it's easy, and you'll be helping scientists keep track of the bird population all over the world.
You have to create an account when you enter your first count, then you're good to go. It makes me wish I had Grandchildren. It would be so much fun to do it with your kids or grandkids. Here's the site http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc
