Great Backyard Bird Count
February 17 – 20, 2023
Community Science events like the Great Backyard Bird Count are important sources of information as we look at global warming, development, deforestation and their effect on nature. The next Great Backyard Bird Count is February 17-20, 2023 and takes place all across America in thousands of communities. Bird watchers of all ages count birds to create a real-time snapshot of where birds are.
