Great Backyard Bird Count Introductory Session at Greenwich Library

February 16, 2019 - Greenwich, CT

Come learn about Winter Bird Watching and how your family can take part in The Great Backyard Bird Count, one of the largest Citizen Science projects in the world, right in your own backyard and neighborhood.

Ted Gilman, Senior Naturalist at the Audubon Center in Greenwich, will introduce us to some of the most common winter birds in our area and explain how you can count these birds this weekend and become part of the Citizen Science team through the Cornell University bird network.

All participants will receive a color chart of common backyard birds and can receive instruction on how to set up a free eBird account with the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology to keep track of your bird sightings this weekend and throughout the year at home and during your travels.

This is a FREE event. All ages are welcome. RSVP is appreciated.
