Great Backyard Bird Count
February 18, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Join the fun of this international event where all levels of birding experience can participate either on this winter bird survey or in your own backyard. The idea is to identify and record as many species as you can recognize in as little time as 15 minutes or for as long as you desire beginning Friday, February 16th through Monday, February 19th. Then you report the list of species on an “on-line” checklist at www.birdcount.org and watch a real time map as reports from all over the world come in. This citizen science information is collected by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society. Meet at the Bretschineder Park parking lot on the north side of Pioneer Trail a few hundred yards east of Page Road in Aurora.
