The kids and I are excited about this year's Great Backyard Bird Count. This will be our first year to participate. The count starts on Friday and ends on Monday. All you have to do is spend at least 15 minutes on one of the days observing birds in your own backyard. You then go online and enter the birds you observed. The link above gives great information about the count and lots of helpful links including regional bird lists and photos. The count is to help researchers learn more about bird populations and trends and gives those of us who love birds a good reason just to sit and watch them!
