Winter is back again so we need a good excuse to get outdoors. That excuse has arrived just in time. Join the annual Great Backyard Bird Count this coming weekend, Friday to Monday, 16-19 February.

Count birds at your feeders. Count birds at a park or hotspot. Count alone or with friends. You don’t even have to sign up.

Enter your sightings in eBird or use Merlin Bird ID. All the birds you record next weekend will automatically be included in the Great Backyard Bird Count.

Warm up with an online Merlin Bird ID Trivia Event this coming Thursday, 15 February 8-9pm Eastern time. Learn more and register at the Great Backyard Bird Count page.

Don’t despair that it’s still winter. Your bird feeders will be busy this weekend. It’s time to count birds!
