This weekend is the 2008 Great Backyard Bird Count! February 15-18th.
(click to enlarge)
Anyone can participate. It only takes 20 minutes. 15 minutes to count birds anywhere you may be and 5 minutes to submit your observations, preferably online. You don't have to be a birding expert, only report the birds that you know. Full instructions can be found on the Great Backyard Bird Count Web Site. This is citizen science at its best and fun along the way. If you haven't participated before, give it a shot.
You can read my report from last year - One, Two, Three, Four.... You can read my report for this year sometime next week here on my blog.
