The Great Backyard Bird Count is next weekend February 14-17! Anyone can participate as long as they count birds for at least 15 minutes and report their results here. This is a great way to get involved with citizen science and contribute to growing database of bird observations documenting changes in urban bird communities across North America. Don't want to count in your backyard? Head on over to Sandy Creek Nature Center and join their count. They will have binoculars and field guides available for anyone to use.
