Attention bird lovers of America: It’s once again time for Audubon’s Great Backyard Bird Count. Anyone can participate — it’s fun and easy! On one or more days of the count (Feb. 13 though 16), simply count the various species you encounter in your area for at least 15 minutes, then enter the results on Audubon’s website. They even have a region-by-region checklist to assist those of us who haven’t had a lot of bird-counting experience. Click here to learn more.
