Great Backyard Bird Count

Two of the most rewarding things about being a birdwatcher: becoming familiar with your own backyard birds and contributing to "citizen science."

The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is a great way to learn about and enjoy your local birds, engage with family and friends, and join thousands across the country in submitting observations to the GBBC database. Simply count any birds you observe in your backyard, local park or other location for just 15 minutes on one or more days between February 17 and 20, and report your findings online at

I'll be watching at my favorite feeders- the ones in my own backyard.  You can watch too!

Learn more about participating in the GBBC at    If you are near Richland county, stop by the Gorman Nature Center to pick up an informative flier.  Hope you help us count the birds, and you'll see how much fun it can be!
