We're gearing up for the annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) and you can too! Check out our 30 Birds to Watch so you can easily spot and count them during February's count. Click on each image to learn about their foliage, habitat, songs, calls, and more.
This year's GBBC takes place from February 12th through 15th. Anyone can become a community scientist during the GBBC. Just follow these three easy steps:
- Sign up for a free eBird account at birdcount.org.
- Choose one or more days during the GBBC to spend 15 minutes counting the birds you see.
- Share your observations with the global GBBC community by uploading your checklist to eBird.
It's that simple!
