On our first evening you will learn about 35 varieties of birds, and explore how to note their field marks, what they eat, where they come from, and other interesting details. Charlie will also talk about how to look out your window and participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count from February 12-15.
We will gather back together for a second evening to share the winter birds you’ve seen. You are invited to share pictures or tell stories!
You may attend both sessions or just one!

What is the Great American Backyard Bird Count?
Each February, for four days, the world comes together for the love of birds. Over these four days people are invited to spend time in their favorite places watching and counting as many birds as they can find and reporting them. These observations help scientists better understand global bird populations before one of their annual migrations.
Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real time. Birds Canada joined the project in 2009 to provide an expanded capacity to support participation in Canada. In 2013, it became a global project when data began to be entered into into eBird, the world’s largest biodiversity-related citizen science (community science) project.
