Yes, I know. It’s been a couple days and you’d like a new post. Sure, so would I…and there’s a couple in the works. But this isn’t them. I’m just popping in here to remind you that this weekend (February 13 – 16) is the Great Backyard Bird Count. The GBBC is an annual four-day event engaging bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent.
Get your bird guides out, grab those binoculars and get a little notebook and a pencil! Anyone can participate, in the city or the country, from beginning bird watchers to experts. It takes as little as 15 minutes on one day, or you can count for as long as you like each day of the event. It’s free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds.
