The Great Backyard Bird Count is a 4-day annual event that provides a snapshot of where birds
are around the world, and which species are in trouble. Last year, 6,436 bird species were identified,
190 countries participated and 379,726 checklists were submitted.
Participants are asked to count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count and enter
their sightings at BirdCount.org. The information gathered by tens of thousands of volunteers helps
track changes in bird populations on a massive scale. The Great Backyard Bird Count is a partnership
between Birds Canada, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and the Audubon Society.
