GBBC 2008

The Great Backyard Bird Count is coming up soon, February 15-18. This is a nation-wide survey organized by national Audubon and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. It's easy to participate by counting birds in your yard or other locations. And it's easy to enter the data into the GBBC web site. You can also follow the results in real time and see how many of what species are being reported from Austin or any other city.

Last year I had a blast counting birds for the GBBC in the NASWC area. I found the only Green Heron and Brown Thrasher reported from Austin in our neighborhood. If you're interested, check out their web site. And if you'd like to join me or count some birds on your own in the NASWC area, send me an email.
