Great Backyard Bird Count 

The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is a four-day, global bird count held every February. Anyone can participate by tallying the numbers and kinds of birds they spot in their yard for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count.

Results can be submitted to Tropical Audubon Society and to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society citizen-science online database known as eBird. The count creates an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of birds.

The next GBBC is scheduled for February 16-19, 2018. For more information, visit the Great Backyard Bird Count website.
