See also

February 18-21. Here's your chance to do something fun and free -- be a part of the 14th annual Great Backyard Bird Count.

Everything you need is at the GBBC website:

downloadable flyers and web buttons, a PowerPoint presentation, posters/brochures, a news release and tips on contacting the media, a special page for kids, a printable tally sheet, and more.

Each year the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Audobon sponsor the GBBC. They rely on participants to help spread the word and encourage more new people to join in. These Ambassadors distribute flyers in their community, hold workshops, and talk to the press.

If you’re interested in doing more to promote the count, visit GBBC Ambassador page.
