Great Backyard Bird Count
February 17, 2012

The 2012 GBBC takes place February 17 through February 20.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!  Click here for more information.

  • Plan to count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count. You can count for longer than that if you wish! Count birds in as many places and on as many days as you like—one day, two days, or all four days. Submit a separate checklist for each new day. You can also submit more than one checklist per day if you count in other locations on that day.
  • Count the greatest number of individuals of each species that you see together at any one time. You may find it helpful to print out your regional bird checklist to get an idea of the kinds of birds you're likely to see in your area in February. You could take note of the highest number of each species you see on this checklist.
  • When you're finished, enter your results through our web page. You'll see a button marked "Enter Your Checklists!" on the website home page beginning on the first day of the count. It will remain active until the deadline for data submission: March 5, 2012.

CJ Q&A

Sometimes we flip the FAQ around and ask you questions!  Does anyone know how to recycle lead acid batteries in the Pittsburgh area?

I'm going to take a little nap until the answer comes in.  -- Cozmo
