For the Birds! Getting Started with the Backyard Bird Count
Join us for a family-friendly evening, learning about birding basics and the annual Back Yard Bird Count event!
Tuesday, February 9th at 6:30 p.m. EST Via Zoom
Calling all community scientists! Each year, birdwatchers of all experience levels and ages contribute their observations to an annual global snapshot of bird populations called the Great Backyard Bird Count. In this interactive webinar, join Maine Audubon’s Staff Naturalist Doug Hitchcox and Early Childhood Education Program Manager Molly Woodring to learn more about participating in this year’s count February 12th – 15th, tips for identifying common backyard birds, and what we’ve learned from previous counts.
