Great Backyard Bird Count banner

Much of the best bird science is derived from data provided by backyard observers and avid birders in the field. You don't have to have a degree in ornithology to provide meaningful data about birds. Organizations like the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology are composed of experts who take data provided by amateur observers and draw solid scientific conclusions about birds, bird populations, bird behavior, and more. On top of all that, they provide a lot of the raw data and the scientific conclusions drawn from that data back to the observers who provided it. That's right, you get to provide data to experts who use their training to perform scientific research, and then the data is given back to you in a user-friendly format.

The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is one of the simplest and best ways to contribute to this wonderful world of citizen science. For instructions on how to create a GBBC account and submit data from February 16-19, click here.
