Have you signed up for The Great Backyard Bird Count? Click on the linked photo above to get started. Basically you have the President's Day weekend to get busy birding - even if for only 15 minutes you can participate! The 18th annual count is taking place February 13 through 16. Enter your sightings at www.BirdCount.org. The information gathered by tens of thousands of volunteers helps track changes in bird populations on a massive scale. The GBBC is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society with partner Bird Studies Canada. Give the birds a Valentine and count them this weekend!
