The Great Backyard Bird Count

It happens this weekend! The Great Backyard Bird Count started yesterday and will finish on Monday. You have until March 1 to enter your data on the website.

This is our first year participating and we are planning on looking at how many birds we can count in 15 minutes time, once a day, over the next three days. The kids page on the website has more information, colouring pages, puzzles and games : the great big backyard bird count is for kids!

Barb at Handbook of Nature Study blog is explaining how to study local birds in her post Winter Series #7 - Winter Birds.
