You Can Be Part Of The Team—Every Bird Counts

The 22nd annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) takes place February 15-18, 2019. The GBBC is a free, fun and easy nationwide event that engages bird appreciators of all ages in counting birds to create a real time snapshot of bird populations around the world. Participants are ask to count birds for as little as 15 minutes or spend the day (as long as you wish) on one or more days of the four-day event and then report their sightings on line at All the instructions to participate are on this website, along with lots of bird-wise information and a photo contest you can enter. Anyone can take part in the GBBC from beginning bird watchers to experts and you can participate from your own backyard or any where around the world. If you know a local teacher in the valley, consider FAS Adopt-a-School (or classroom) program. The GBBC is a great way to engage young people in the world around them.
