Another opportunity to watch birds and advance science is the Greater Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) which starts this Friday, February 17th and runs through Monday the 20th. It is simple to do, requires no technical expertise and is easy to report on line. You can do it anywhere on any or all 4 days and it requires a minimum of 15 minutes of your time. Click on this web site and watch the instructional video. Then on the days you participate, simply go to the GBBC website and begin.
