Great Backyard Bird Count

Chickadees and woodpeckers dine at our homemade pine cone bird feeders.  We look forward to counting them in the next Great Backyard Bird Count on February 17 to 20, 2012.

The Great Backyard Bird Count website has lots of information about birds and fun activities to help kids develop birdwatching skills.  The site explains why the count is important for scientists, has a video that describes how to participate in the bird count and generates a list of the birds you may find in your area.   Would you like to join the count? You could win a prize!
