Backyard Bird Count Feb. 13-16

Just to remind all of those backyard bird watchers out there, or anyone who pays attention to wildlife around them, that The Great Backyard Bird Count is led by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society is going to be happening this year on the weekend of February 15-16, 2009. So get out your pencils and a pad of paper and be ready to start counting the different species of birds you see! You can count birds all day or spend just 15 minutes each day and record what you observe. Then go to The Great Backyard Bird Count web site and enter in your data. This really helps determine bird species distribution across the United States and is also a fun project. Visit The Great Backyard Bird Count for all the information you need on how to take part in this national birding event. Thanks for your help!!
