The community of Huntsville and surrounding areas are invited to grab their binoculars and participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count. The event runs from February 16th through 19th. Join bird watchers of all ages as they count birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are. The count provides valuable information to scientists on bird populations. Simply tally the numbers and kinds of birds you see for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count. You can count from any location, anywhere in the world. For more information, see the GBBC website: gbbc.birdcount.org.
