Great Backyard Bird Count
Friday February 14, 2014 - Monday February 17, 2014:
In the Garden


The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent. Many bird species, some in large flocks of 30 to 200 birds, enter the Garden’s natural environment along the Lewis Birding Trail throughout the day. Anyone can participate, from beginning bird watchers to experts.

We will supply you with a list of birds commonly seen at the Garden in February along with color photographs to help you ID the birds on the checklist. Come help us count birds in the Garden! It’s an ideal way for more experienced birders to introduce children, grandchildren, and others to the wonderful world of birds or for fledgling birders to learn new species!

You can explore which species have been seen in our community by using maps and charts on the GBBC website (http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/). Make the birds in your neighborhood count! Join in this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count.
