Another fun winter activity everyone in the area can participate in!! The 14th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count led by Audubon, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, with Bird Studies Canada as their Canadian Partner, takes place February 18th – 21st, 2011.
Check the schoolyard, the playgrounds, the ski trails and snowmobile trails, or simply count the birds you see at your own birdfeeders. Keep an eye out while you drive back and forth to work. We’ve had several interesting visitors in town the past week, including pretty Purple Finches, sleek Bohemian Waxwings, and chattering Crows.
Have fun watching our feathered friends, and enter your tallies online at www.birdcount.org.
