GREAT BACKYARD BIRD COUNT – ST. MARY’S COUNTY
February 16 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm
Special GBBC events have been scheduled throughout Southern Maryland. Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real time. Join us at any of the events listed below or count birds in your own backyard! For information about the GBBC see their website at birdcount.org. You can help out by counting birds for as little as 15 minutes.
