Bird watchers wanted
February 3, 2009
The 12th annual Great Backyard Bird Count is Feb. 13-16. Anyone who can identify even a few species can take part in this free event. Just count birds you see at your chosen site for as little as 15 minutes on one or more days of the event and then report your sightings online at www.birdsource.org/gbbc.
The data participating “citizen scientists” collect helps researchers understand bird population trends, information that is critical for effective conservation.
