What birds visit your yard? Take a few minutes to watch them and join in The Great Backyard Bird Count. It starts tomorrow, Friday February 18th, and it lasts for four days,until Monday February 21. It's free, fun and easy and it is quite helpful to the birds. You can spend as little as 15 minutes or as long as you like.
Read how to participate here. You can even print out a bird checklist.
It's a great way to get the children involved, and other adults who are not familiar with birds.
We take part in the GBBC each year, and it inspires us to keep a running list of our bird visitors the rest of the year, for our own enjoyment.
Why don't you give it a try!
happy day happy birding!
