The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) being held this weekend, Feb 18 – 21.
And, you can all participate from your own backyard.
In all the years that I’ve been bird watching from our kitchen window, back yard and other places, I never participated in this event. And, the weather here (VA eastern shore) this weekend is warm enough to be outdoors doing this count.
Not only is this a fun event that will get you outdoors, but there’s prizes – birdfeeders, books, t-shirts, caps – everyone has a chance to win since it’s going to be a drawing from among all participants.
Here’s more links to information from the GBBC website:
