WOW-Great Backyard Bird Count

Posted on 13. Feb, 2017 by in WOW! Blog

This coming weekend is Presidents Day Weekend Friday Feb. 17 through Feb. 20. Looking for something to do? Why not try out The Great Backyard Bird Count.  It’s easy and you can spend as little or as much time as you want counting the birds that come to your feeders or counting birds as you go for a walk in the woods.  Where ever you are this weekend pay attention to the birds.  Count the ones you see and report them to The Great Backyard Bird Count.  This is a part of Citizen Science and you will be helping ornithologists learn about bird populations as well as patterns of bird migration.  Here’s a link to some instructions about how to count and report your bird sightings.  Get outdoors and enjoy! http://gbbc.birdcount.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/2016Updates_English_DownloadableInstructions.pdf
