The 10th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count is scheduled for February 15-18. Visit www.birdsource.org/gbbc and participate.
1. Plan to count birds for at least 15 minutes during February 15-18, 2008. Count birds at as many places and on as many days as you like-just keep a separate list of counts for each day and/or location.
2. Count the greatest number of each species that you see together at any one time, and write it down.
3. Enter your results through the web page. That's it! The National Audubon Society and Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology sponsor this project.
