The Great Backyard Bird Count

The Great Backyard Bird Count begins today.

Don't know what it is?
Its an annual 4 day event, when birders count the birds in their area, 
creating a snapshot of where the birds are across the continent.

 You can count the birds for as little as 15 minutes.

 If you're unsure about bird identification,
you can print a regional list of birds in you area to help you.

Then you simply report your sightings on a web page.

Its fun, easy and educational.

If you are interested in taking part, here's the web site.

Have fun!
