|The Great Backyard Bird Count, started in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National
Audubon Society, will be held this year from Friday, February 13, to Monday, February 16. This on-line
citizen science project, designed to create an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of
birds, has had more than 100,000 volunteers of all ages contributing to its findings.
Participants tally the numbers and kinds of birds seen during a period of at least 15 minutes on one or
more of the four days of the count. You can count from any location anywhere in the world.
