Save the Date! Great Backyard Bird Count Coming!

I really enjoy the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) every year. This year's GBBC will be February 18 - 21.

Whether a new, novice birder or an old hand, the GBBC is a fun activity. You can participate for as little as 15 minutes, so is a good activity for parents/grandparents to do with their children. It would also be a great way to learn more about birds for scouts, school classrooms, or as a home school science activity. You do not have to be able to identify all of the birds you see, so even a person that knows only a handful of birds can take part.

Members of the Rolling Plains Texas Master Naturalists will have a group count in conjunction with Wild Bird Rescue at some time during this count period--I'll post details when they become available.

I will be going to several locations during this 4-day period to make counts. If you want to go with me, email txbirds@gmail.com and we'll try to hook up.

Good birding!
