Great Backyard Bird Count Coming 13 - 16 Feb


At tonight's Rolling Plains Texas Master Naturalist meeting, Terry McKee and Jane McGough gave a presentation about the Great Backyard Bird Count coming up February 13 - 16. I enjoy participating in the GBBC (it is an excuse to bird, after all). I usually try to do one local park each day of the count, depending upon the weather and other events. I am looking forward to getting out.
The GBBC is a great activity for parents/grandparents to do with children. With a minimum time investment of 15 minutes, even the youngest birder can stay focused. Jane issued a challenge tonight for all members of the chapter to get out and submit at least one checklist. I'll definintely step up to that challenge!
Good birding!

I'll accept and second that challenge. Anyone interested in getting involved but wanting a little assistance or support can participate at River Bend Nature Center. We will even provide computer access to upload checklists. Just give me a call at 940-767-0843 or email at jmiller@riverbendnaturecenter.org for details.
