The GBBC! It's coming!

Heads up folks... mark your calendars... The Great Backyard Bird Count will soon be upon us. February 15-18 will be the days. If you don't know what the GBBC is, here's what Cornell has to say about it:

"The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent. Anyone can participate, from beginning bird watchers to experts. It takes as little as 15 minutes. It’s free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds."

If you're up to it, sign up to be a GBBC Ambassador for your local community. Last year, the count had over 81,000 checklists submitted which shattered previous records. Let's try to shatter it again this year.
