Great Backyard Bird Count Results Released

Those who participated in the Great Backyard Bird Count this year may be interested in the information posted at the website. Wichita Falls had 75 species counted over the 4 days, which isn't bad, although not as good as 2010 (which was a record year for us.) You can also tell by looking at previous years' data that more people are participating--this is probably the primary reason the number of species and the number of individuals is increasing.

Next year's GBBC is February 17 - 20, 2012, so block those days on your calendar now. The more people, the more checklists and the better the information.

Good birding!
