Since 1998, The Great Backyard Bird Count has been collecting citizen science data on birds. This project has been a staple for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society by involving over 100,000 people across 100 different countries resulting in more than 6,200 species counted from over 151,500 check lists in 2017. The data they collect looks at the distribution and abundance of bird species, and the changes from year to year. Most people who take part will spend more than 15 minutes either watching a bird feeder or counting what they see from their home.
Don’t want to bird alone? No problem! TLC will be hosting bird walks through out the count:
February 16th, 2018 from 8am -10 am at Johnston Mill Nature Preserve with Bo
February 17th, 2018 from 8am -10 am at Brumley Nature Preserve with Molly
