Great Backyard Bird Count Feb 18-21

Posted on 07. Feb, 2011 by in WOW Events, WOW Past Events, WOW! Blog

Look for us at the Davidson Farmer’s Market on Saturday, Feb. 12.  We’ll be there promoting The Great Backyard Bird Count which  is always held Presidents’ Day Weekend.  This year that will be February 18-21.  This is an opportunity for people of all ages to be a part of Citizen Science.  You can count in your own yard or count in your neighborhood.  Maybe you’d like to go on a hike and count.  This link will tell you all you need to know about how to count, what to count and how to report your counts.

Hope you’ll join me in this fun, family activity. Grab a field guide and your binoculars and get outside.  If you get excited about birdwatching and counting you might like to check out ebirdAll about Birds, and Project Feederwatch.  If you participate in the GBBC come back here and comment on this blog post to let us know and maybe tell us  something about what you saw.  We’d love to know.  And become a follower of our blog.  We’ll be talking about WOW events and other nature related ideas.
