This international event engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent. Participants tally the number of individual birds of each species they see during their count period. You can count for as long as you like each day of the event, then enter your count numbers on the GBBC website. To learn more about the Great Backyard Bird Count and how you can participate, see their website at www.birdsource.org/gbbc
In addition, at 7:00pm on Thursday, February 13, 2014, there will be a training session (either by conference call or an online webinar) for people to learn how to participate in the GBBC and how to record the bird data. There will also be some discussion about bird identification. Please sign in early for the online webinar as you will have to download some software on your computer in order to participate.
