Great Backyard Bird Count
February 16 - February 19
Enjoy the 21st annual Great Backyard Bird Count from the comfort of your own home!
The GBBC runs from Friday, February 16, to Monday, February 19. Everyone can participate in this fun, free, and family-friendly program. And it couldn’t be easier: just watch your bird feeders for as little as 15 minutes, count the birds, and record your count on the GBBC Web site. Check out the details there, too.
In 2017, GBBC participants in more than 100 countries counted more than 6,200 species of birds on more than 180,000 checklists. Let’s see if we can create an even bigger annual snapshot of the distribution of birds this year!
