Count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the GBBC!   Go to the GBBC website, sign up (you can use your EBird account), and submit your lists of what species and how many birds of each species you see.  The GBBC gives us a snapshot of how birds are surviving the winter and where they are located just before spring migrations begin in March. Scientists at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the National Audubon Society, Bird Studies Canada, and elsewhere can combine this information with data from surveys conducted at different times of the year.   Data will be integrated into eBird. You can also submit your photos for possible inclusion on their website.
