The Great Backyard Bird Count
Ok, I’m in! I plan to do some bird counting as part of the Great Backyard Bird Count, a joint effort of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Audobon. Dates: Feb 17-22. That pretty much represents my current philosophy of observing nature: just outside my door – i.e. my backyard!
So how do you officially bird count:
1. Plan to count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count.
2. Count the greatest number of individuals of each species that you see together at any one time.
3. When you’re finished, enter your results through the event’s web page.
