Join 10,000 participants across the globe in the 2017 Great American Backyard Bird Count. Helping the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society to collect information about bird populations are changing over time. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Register
  2. Count birds for at least 15 minutes on at least one day between Friday, February 17 – Monday, February 20.
  3. Submit your observations on their website, or via their app.

Check their website for some awesome online guides (because unless you’re like my mom you’ll probably forget all the bird names) and apps.
