The Great Backyard Bird Count!

backyardbirdcount

FOFAH invites you to participate in the 2016 Great Backyard Bird Count. This annual four-day event is February 12-15.

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 1998, more than 100,000 people of all ages and walks of life have joined the four-day count each February to create an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of birds.

Simply log on and register, then tally the numbers and kinds of birds you see for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count, February 12-15, 2016. You can count from any location, anywhere in the world!

In 2015, Great Backyard Bird Count participants in more than 100 countries counted 5,090 species of birds on more than 147,000 checklists! See the full 2015 summary.

Help make this the most successful count ever by participating this year! Log on to http://gbbc.birdcount.org.
