Don’t you wish this was your backyard?
Ready to spend this weekend gazing adoringly at the ones you love? Perfect, because the Great Backyard Bird Count has begun! The GBBC stands as one of the most important and easy international citizen science initiatives. Just pay attention to a patch or yard for a few days and log your sightings. What a simple yet profound way to contribute to our collective understanding of bird behavior and distribution. Get involved!
I plan to check out my mother-in-law’s rural feeders, which are far more productive than my suburban ones. Corey, as an urbanite, has to make to with a balcony or his neighbors’ roofs! How about you? Where will you be watching backyard birds this weekend? Share your plans in the comments below.
Whatever your plans this weekend, make time to enjoy SkyWatch Friday. Also be sure to come back Monday to share your best bird of the weekend!
I hope I can get outside somewhere in Costa Rica. Valentine’s Day is big in CR.
