The Great Backyard Bird Count takes place every February, involving people globally counting birds over four days and sharing their data with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. These observations contribute to understanding bird populations just before their spring migration. An easy way to participate is by attracting birds to your yard with feeders. During your session, you'll delve into attracting specific species and bird watching in the gardens near the Bluebird Barn. You'll compile a list to submit to the Great Backyard Bird Count.
