Great Backyard Bird Count


February 13-16, 2015


www.BirdCount.org http://www.birdcount.org/>




I would like to invite you (and your students) to participate in the

upcoming citizen science project, the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC).

This annual event led by Audubon, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and partner

Bird Studies Canada asks people of all ages and abilities to count their

local birds and submit their observations online at www.BirdCount.org





Participation is fun, free, and easy and takes as little as fifteen

minutes. Simply register for an account on the program website, review the

participation instructions, then go out and count all of the birds you are

able to identify and report your results online. Your observations,

together with hundreds of thousands of others from around the world,

contribute to our understanding of global bird distribution and abundance.

Regular eBird users can continue submitting their results to eBird.org

during the count to participate.




We hope you will consider participating in this exciting program, and if

you’re interested in helping to promote the count in your local area you

can find more information and resources to help you spread the word here:





For more information about the Great Backyard Bird Count please contact me
