The 2020 Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), one of Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology’s Citizen Science projects, will be held February 14-17. Please have a look at the GBBC event description on their web page at www.birdsource.org for detailed instructions to create a free GBBC account for entering your observations. You are invited to count birds at bird feeders, in your yard, local parks or other outdoor locations, and then report your findings online at gbbc.birdcount.org or at eBird.
A guided GBBC count will be led by Sharman Franklin and her grandson Gavin Franklin on Friday, February 14th from 8:30 am to noon. If interested, please contact Birdsong to sign up and plan to meet Sharman and Gavin in the Birdsong parking lot at 8:15 am.
If you prefer doing your own survey, come out and observe birds anywhere at Birdsong, including the Bird Window, for a minimum of 15 minutes and up to as long as you want, on any or all days of the bird count, and as many times as you want. (Birdsong is open 9 – 5, Friday and Saturday and 1 – 5 on Sunday, closed on Monday.) You can turn in your own results online at gbbc.birdcount.org or pick up a tally sheet at the registration desk, go bird watching, fill the sheet out and leave it here at Birdsong and we will submit your observations.
