Great Backyard Bird Count

Fri Feb 12, 2021
Various times
All ages
Free

The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are.

Everyone is welcome, from beginning bird watchers to experts. It takes as little as 15 minutes on one day, or you can count for as long as you like each day of the event. It’s free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds. 

Participants tally the number of individual birds of each species they see during their count period. They enter these numbers on the GBBC website.
