The GBBC Starts Tomorrow

The Great Backyard Bird Count is another opportunity to do some “citizen science.”  It starts tomorrow (Feb. 17)  and runs through February 20.  First go to the Great Backyard Bird Count Website to read up on what is asked of participants.  Then choose a spot–your backyard or wherever you want–and count the birds you see for at least 15 minutes.  Submit your information on the Great Backyard Bird Count website.  Voila!

Read more about birdwatching in the Autumn 2011 issue of Quarterly Speed Bump Magazine.  And, we’d love to hear how your GBBC experience goes.
