For those of you who enjoy watching birds, here is a chance to help document the birds in your area, by taking part in The Great Backyard Bird Count!
It takes place February 18-21 (Friday-Monday).
All that is required is a minimum of 15 minutes per day of bird watching and recording your observations on the website that is hosting the yearly count.
All levels of bird knowledge are very welcomed.
This event helps those who study birds to get a picture of the happenings and health of birds in North America, and around the world.
According to the info page for the Count, "bird populations are shifting" and the more people who participate in this yearly event, the better a picture there is of this "annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of birds".
