We received an email from the Backyard Bird Count folks today!
Christmas Bird Count
People have been having fun doing their Christmas Bird Count (CBC) every year since December 1900. It’s a great way to expand your birding horizons beyond your backyard. Every CBC is run on one calendar day between 14 December and 5 January each year. As a field observer you will bird with a group of observers and the birds you count will be included with those of others out counting birds in the 15-mile diameter circle during census day. If you live within a CBC circle, you can count birds at your feeder. For more information about fees and to find out more about the a CBC please visit: http://www.audubon.org/bird/cbc/ or contact your local bird club or Audubon chapter.
Great Backyard Bird Count
Mark your calendars for the tenth annual Great Backyard Bird Count, 16-19 February 2007. We’d like to make this the best GBBC ever, and could use your help in spreading word about this event. It’s fun and helps everyone learn more about birds. If you represent an Audubon chapter and want to promote GBBC, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to spread the word about the Great Backyard Bird Count more generally, consider joining us as a Great Backyard Bird Count Ambassador.
