Have a Little Fun and do a Little Good

17 years ago

Coming up directly is the Great Annual Back Yard Bird Count! It's free, it's fun, it helps ornithologists to garner statistics about migrating birds and presence of populations of other bird species.

You don't have to be an expert to contribute. You might learn something about wild birds as a by-product of your effort and you might be intrigued enough to start a new hobby.

For three days February 16th to the 19th, everyone all over the country who has at least fifteen minutes to spare (that's not asking a lot, is it?) are invited to watch what comes to their bird feeder areas and submit the numbers online. What a wonderful tool the internet has given science to obtain an immense sample size just through the generosity of many people willing to give just a little time.

The winners in the end are the species who share our habitat and they enrich our lives in return. Thanks!
