Annual Backyard Bird Count

2005 Adam Sedgley

This weekend is the annual Great Backyard Bird Count, sponsored by Cornell University's Laboratory of Ornithology.

Birders across the country count birds in parks or fields or their own back yards, and then report the numbers online.

The number of reports sent in last year by citizen-scientists numbered more than 97,000.

Although it may seem that crows are everywhere, the beautiful Northern Cardinal appears at the top of the list nearly every year, far above the crow.

Put your knowledge of your common local birds to work; join the count! You can start right this minute-and send in your count online.

All the results are tabulated and displayed as they come in. And the results of past years are on-line, too. You can even send pictures for the gallery.

There's no cost, and you don't need to register. You'll find a link and more information BirdNote.org.
