In 2013 almost 135,000 checklists were submitted as part of this project.
This is great opportunity for classrooms, scouting groups and new birders to get out and learn about the birds. The time can be as little as 15 minutes, or as long as you are still having a good time.
Locally, two group GBBC events are planned--if you want to take part, but don't feel our bird identification skills are up to par, team up with some more experienced birdwatchers at these events.
In addition, I'll be doing some independent bird counts on the 14th and 17th, and would welcome any new birders who would like to take part. Just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below.
