Great Backyard Bird Count Feb. 15-18, 2008

The 11th annual Great Backyard Bird Count is coming up. Help create a mid-winter snapshot of where the birds are by counting birds at any location for at least 15 minutes on one or more of the count days.

Last year, in just four days in February, participants in the Great Backyard Bird Count tallied more than 11 million birds across the United States and Canada. Together, they recorded 616 species and submitted more than 80,000 checklists—33 percent more than the previous high of 61,000 checklists in 2000.

It's a fun family thing to do and you really do make a difference for the birds - "your" birds do count and you make a difference for them when you submit their visits to your site.
