The 2013 GBBC is coming in February!
Hey Birdwatchers! The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual 4-day event that engages bird
watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where
the birds are. This citizen science program contributes to bird conservation and
Everyone is welcome--from beginning bird watchers to experts. It takes as
little as 15 minutes on one day, or you can count for as long as you like each
day of the event. It’s free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds.
Participants tally the number of individual birds of each species they see
during their count period. They enter these numbers on the GBBC website.
Locally, I will be conducting a GBBC Workshop on February 5, 2013 from 6:30-8:30 pm at the County Administration Bldg. in Martinsville, Indiana through the Morgan County Soil & Water Conservation District. The workshop will include info on how to collect and input data and identify
birds. It is free but we would like you to register by calling 765-349-2060.
If you are not in this area, please take time to participate! It can take as little as 15 minutes.
