The Great American Bird Count Begins!

Posted on: February 18th, 2011 by Kay Swatkowski

Spring is coming! While bike riding and hikes in the woods are still out of the question there are some fun things we can do to help our grandchildren connect with the beautiful world around them! And, we can build some great memories at the same time.

Tomorrow begins the Great American Bird Count
. For four days,(February 18-21) families across America will be identifying and counting the birds in their own backyard for 15 minutes a day. At they will record their own count and be able to see the final tally.
