The success of the Great Backyard Bird Count depends on participants from every community helping count birds across the United States and Canada. Spread the word in your town by asking people to count birds for at least 15 minutes during February 15-18, 2013. It's fun, easy, raises awareness of birds, and provides an important record of where the birds are--a record that scientists can use well into the future to track how birds are faring as their environments change.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Audubon, and Bird Studies Canada invite everyone to "Count for Fun, Count for the Future."

I have to look into this....I love watching the birds at my feeder (even though I don't always know what species they are....LOL)....but I could definitely do this!
