Get Ready for the Great Backyard Bird Count
Tuesday, February 13, 2024 | 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Did you know that over 40 million people consider themselves bird watchers and enthusiasts in the United States? This virtual program, via zoom, will help prepare attendees for the Great Backyard Bird Count, an international bird observation program that takes place February 16 – 19. Over 300,000 citizen scientists participated last year alone and sighted 7600 birds across the globe! You’ll learn the history of the Bird Count, its importance, and how you can participate. A cooperative venture speared by the Cornell Lab, the National Audubon Society, and Birds Canada, this event enters its twenty sixth year. We’ll share images and sounds of local birds to help you identify some expected species in our area and discuss techniques to encourage birds to visit our backyard. There will also be time for Q&A.
Free to all | Registration required
A link to the Zoom program will be sent to all who register a day prior.
