This weekend is the Great Backyard Bird Count, Friday-Monday, Feb 12th-15th.   It's easy and fun to participate and your data will contribute to one of the largest bird citizen science projects in the world.

I hope you'll all consider logging your observations over the weekend.  While it is called the "backyard" bird count, in this case your backyard is everywhere and you can log any sightings you have throughout the country.

For data integrity purposes, there are filters in place that tag unusual sightings or unusually high numbers.  Don't be surprised if you have something good if you are contacted with questions about your sighting, much in the same way as you would need to provide details for a CBC record.
