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.
