Great Backyard Bird Count Weekend

    The Great Backyard Bird Count organized by Cornell University took place this weekend February 15-18.  The idea is pretty simple, just stand in the place where you live and count all the birds you see in your yard and report the totals at   .

Now face North
  The GBBC is not just confined to your residence.  You can also stand in the place where you work and count the birds there while you think about the place you live.
