Community Science - Great Backyard Bird Count
Join us at Pickering Creek Audubon Center for Great Backyard Bird Count in February! There are two ways to participate. Sign up to join experienced birders at Pickering Creek to go bird watching in small groups on Saturday, February 19, from 9-11am. Or, you can enjoy watching birds from the comfort of your home anytime on Friday, February 18 through Monday, February 21. Then share your results with the Center through e-Bird at PCAC- GBBC (there is a space after the dash). Record the date (s) and time you spend birdwatching at Pickering Creek or at home online under Great Backyard Bird Count.
You are also invited to join Mary Helen and Samantha for the Great Backyard Bird Count Kickoff webinar on Friday, February 18 at 10am. We’ll check out birds you might see, walk through how to do the count, and share a couple of crafts to get the whole family ready to have fun with GBBC weekend. The program is free of charge. You can sign up on at Pickering Creek's public programs page.
You can find also directions for participation in the count here at https://www.birdcount.org/
Happy bird watching!
