Backyard Bird Count for 2006

I was just viviting a wonderful birding blog, "A DC Birding Blog" and John over there has a great article called "The Great Backyard Bird Count for 2006." Check it out and while you are there look around, if you are into birds you will love this blog!

Here is an excerpt from "The Great Backyard Bird Count for 2006":

The Great Backyard Bird Count for 2006 is coming up this weekend, February 17-20. The GBBC is one of several "citizen science" projects that are coordinated by the National Audubon Society and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Like the Christmas Bird Count and mid-winter counts run by local birding clubs, the GBBC aims to establish bird population and distribution. What sets the GBBC apart is that this count provides a nationwide picture of bird populations over a single weekend, rather than the two-week period of the CBCs or the local picture of the mid-winter counts. The late February date places the GBBC at a time when most birds are on their wintering ground - after fall migration is done and before spring migration is taking off.

    Thanks for this link. I've become a regular birder since moving here.
    They've been having a time at our feeder the past few days. I had to refill it for the first time in several months and it's already half empty (or full depending on ones perspective). Right now there's a Chicadee who seems to have taken up residence there.
