Great Backyard Bird Count 2021
24th Annual GBBC
The Great Backyard Bird count (GBBC) is scheduled to run from Friday, February 12 through Monday, February 15 and details on how to participate can be found at birdcount.org. So, all you need to do is find some time to sit and count birds in your backyard during the count period. You can count for as little as 15 minutes or as long as you would like. You can count on any or all days during the count period. Just make sure your counts include the number of species you see and the number of individuals of each species you record.

4th Annual Harmonie State Park Warbler Madness
Led by John Meridig, linguistics professor at UE, this trip will be good for migrating warblers, vireos, and flycatchers. Dr. Meridig has a great ear for bird song, so he will be able to identify many more species by song alone. This is always a great trip, so don't miss it.
We will meet at the pool parking lot at Harmonie State Park at 7:15 am.
This hike is open to the public and all we require is a face mask and kindness. For any questions or additional details, contact email@example.com.
