It's not every day we get to help researchers, but this 4-day weekend we can. It's time for the Great Backyard Bird Count!
These are birds I photographed in my area of the FloraBama Gulf Coast: 1.
cardinal, 2. bluejay, 3. woodpecker, 4. bluebird2, 5. Sparrows, 6.
Seagull, 7. Tufted Titmouse, 8. Seagulls, 9. Carolina Chickadee, 10.
Yellow-rumped Warbler, 11. Cooper's Hawk, 12. Northern Mockingbird, 13.
Today through Monday, February 12-15, you are invited to help researchers identify where birds are located by simply sitting down for 15 minutes and counting the birds you see. With the information on the form, identifying birds is pretty easy, too!
Here is more from the creators of the GBBC:
A joint project of the National Audubon Society and the Cornell Lab
of Ornithology with Bird Studies Canada as the official Canadian
partner, 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 across the continent and in
Hawaii. Anyone can participate, 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.
