Great Backyard Bird Count is Back!

07 Feb 2013 10:52 AM | Anonymous
Where do birds go and when? Birdwatchers all over the country help answer those questions through participation in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). They spend a few minutes or all day looking for birds in their backyards or a favorite birding spot. They count numbers of birds and species and submit them to  the GBBC web site. The more people who participate, the better the picture of bird locations will be.

Every year, birders around New Mexico participate in the GBBC. They learn more about the birds, their children develop a bond with local nature, and everyone discovers where the birds are. When you see one of those maps in a bird book showing where birds are at different times of the year, you see the results of bird counts like GBBC. Be part of the discovery and enjoy spotting an unusual species in your back yard.

The GBBC for 2013 starts on February 15 and lasts through February 18. Put Las Vegas NWR on the map!
