Join Audubon naturalists to watch birds and participate in a worldwide bird count know as the Great Backyard Bird Count. Learn how to identify and count backyard songbirds at the Greenwich Audubon Center bird feeders and take a brief walk through our apple orchard to find birds outside. Afterwards, we'll submit our findings to an online database and show you how you can do the bird count at home! All data collected by count participants will be used as crucial data by ornithologists to study the health of our bird populations.
- All ages are welcome
- Admission: $10 per person
To RSVP, please contact Ryan MacLean at Ryan.MacLean@audubon.org or 203-930-1353.
