Anyone who has internet access can participate in this mid-winter birding event sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon. All you have to do is:
*Count birds for at least 15 minutes at your favorite location(s).
*Record the highest number of each species seen at once.
*Enter your checklists on the GBBC website: gbbc.birdcount.org/ or on your eBird account.
Launched in 1998, the Great Backyard Bird Count was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time. Since the merger with eBird, people from all over the world can now participate in this global event!
