Mark Your Calendars - Birds!

The Aubudon Society recently sent a reminder email about this year's Great Backyard Bird Count.  This year, the count will be happening February 18 - 21. 

Each year, participants are encouraged to count birds - in their backyard, at work, on their daily travels and submit those counts to the Birdcount web site.  The data are used by the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology and the Audubon Society understand more about the continent's bird populations.   Anyone can participate - it doesn't matter if the only birds you see are the same couple of species that land on your back fence.

Find out more at the official Great Backyard Bird Count site.  It's fun!
