This is for the birds!

Hey, for all you folks who have spotted eagles, owls and so many other birds around the Bayshore, tomorrow starts the annual four day Great Backyard Bird Count. It’s fun and easy to join it, and is a safe and enjoyable activity even during this Covid thing. A great one to do with your kids. Make it a family project. This year, you can even record your sightings with eBird, a free mobile app that lets you enter your birds right when you see them in the palm of your hand. If you are new to the count, try using the Merlin Bird ID app. If you have participated in the count before, try eBird Mobile app or enter your bird list on the eBird website. All you have to do to participate, either by yourself or in a group, is watch birds for 15 minutes or more, at least once over the four days, beginning at 12:01 a.m. Feb. 12 and ending at 11:59 p.m. Feb. 15 and report it. It all helps in protecting birds, learning more about their migration, and areas where they are either new, or vacating residents. Visit gbbc@birds.cornell.edu.1 for more information.
