Join 300,000 citizen scientists around the world in the 17th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count Feb. 14-17. Simply count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count and upload your sightings at gbbc.birdcount.org.
Last year’s Great Backyard Bird Count shattered records after going global. Participants reported bird sightings from all seven continents. More than 34.5 million birds and 3,610 species were recorded. Information gathered helps track the health of bird populations at a scale that would not otherwise be possible.
