The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is a national citizen science program by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, National Audubon Society, Bird Studies Canada, and eBird that creates an annual snapshot of bird populations in North America each February.
In contrast with the Christmas Bird Counts the GBBC can be performed anywhere you want to bird during the assigned four day period. Simply submit your bird list on the GBBC website and contribute to this great program.
The next GBBC will take place February 13th-16th, 2015. GEAS is happy to help groups or classrooms participate in this program, please contact us if you would like some direction or a pre-count presentation!
