Join Us for the Great Backyard Bird Count, February 14-17, 2014
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
*Count birds anywhere you like for at LEAST 15 minutes—or even longer if you wish. Keep track of the kinds of birds you see and how long you watched.
*Make your best estimate of how many birds you saw of each species. For example, 5 Northern Cardinals, 3 American Crows. Huge flocks may be a challenge, but your best guess is still valuable.
*Enter your list(s) online at http://www.BirdCount.org. Put in a new checklist:
–for each new day –for each different location –for the same location, same day, if you counted at a different time of day
*Note: Look for the “Submit Observations” tab on the Great Backyard Bird Count (or eBird) website. You can start entering bird lists at 7:00 AM Eastern time (U.S.) on the first day of the count.
