Your choice!

Each February, for four days the world comes together to admire birds during the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). Participants spend time in their favorite places observing and counting as many birds as they can find and report their findings. This helps scientists better understand global bird populations. We hope you'll join us this year!

Birding is a fun activity you can do with the whole family! Spend just fifteen minutes of your weekend exploring the birds around your home and tell us what you see for the Great Backyard Bird Count.
