Great Backyard Bird Count

The 24th AnnualGreat Backyard Bird Count(GBBC) begins Friday, February 12, and continues through Monday, February 15. And when the latest science shows that two-thirds of North American birds are threatened by climate change, there is no better time to get involved.

The GBBC is a free, fun, and family-friendly way to support bird conservation.Here’s how it works: spend as little as 15 minutes on one or more days of the count tallying birds in your community, and then submit your lists online. The data collected by volunteers from around the world powers conservation and helps us better understand how the birds we love are faring.

All it takes is 15 minutes to make a difference. Read on to learn how to safely participate in this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count.
