The Great Backyard Bird Count: How to Participate and Bird ID For Beginners
Birds are everywhere, all the time, doing fascinating things – even in your own backyard. Watching them – and then reporting what you see to help scientists better understand and protect birds – is the idea behind the Great Backyard Bird Count. Whether you go out birding or stay at home watching from a window, and whether you count one bird or hundreds, participating is easy and fun for all ages.
New to the GBBC? Join us for this two-part virtual presentation. The first part will explain how to participate in the GBBC. This will be followed by a primer on the identification of common birds you might see, including finches, sparrows, thrushes, woodpeckers, chickadees, nuthatches, blackbirds, and hawks. If you can’t tell a sparrow from a finch this is the class for you!
