One  simply watch birds at any location for at least 15 minutes, tally the numbers of each species they see, and report their tallies online. You may also count for as long as you like each day of the count.

For the first time this year, the GBBC will be integrated with eBird, a worldwide bird data collection program used for keeping track of your personal bird records and bird lists (http://ebird.org/content/ebird/). Birders have a choice of entering their GBBC data through www.BirdCount.org or www.ebird.org Participants will also be able to upload their counts from the field using the eBird BirdLog app for Apple or Android smartphones.

Please participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count, February 15 - 18.
