Backyard Bird Count

Friday, February 14, 2020

Bird Count Days: Friday, February 14- Sunday, February 16 from 11 AM-4 PM Need to get out of the house during these winter days but want to do something different? Join in a worldwide bird count right from our bird viewing room! The Great Backyard Count was launched in 1998 by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, and was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in real-time. Now, people of all ages and walks of life worldwide join the count each February to create an annual snapshot of distribution and abundance of birds. For at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the bird count, simply tally the number and kinds of birds you see. We will have tools for you to use on-site. Help us learn more about the birds in our neighborhood.
