Gearing up for the GBBC!

In two weeks, the 11th annual Great Backyard Birdcount, a nationwide, 4-day birding event, will begin.

Led by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society, the GBBC will run from Feb. 15-18, 2008.

Last year, over 81,000 checklists were submitted, 613 species were observed, and over 11 million individual birds were counted all over the country. GBBC offers prizes, a photo contest, and local events to all participants.

This will be my first year participating, and I'm looking forward to it. February has been a great month for birding so far, so I can't wait to see how many I can count during the event!

Good luck and Happy birding!
