Updates for birders

Help count the birds

Bird-lovers are wanted to participate in this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count Feb. 12-15. 

The count is an annual effort to help researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society learn more about bird populations.  Participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes — or as long as desired — on one or more days before reporting sightings at www.birdcount.org. 

Last year, more than 140,000 participants submitted observations, creating the largest instantaneous snapshot of global bird populations ever recorded.
