Great Backyard Bird Count at Grass Island

February 14, 2020 - Greenwich, CT

Join Audubon Naturalists as we count waterbirds and land birds in Greenwich Harbor as part of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's annual Great Backyard Bird Count. Ducks, geese, loons, and gulls are some of the birds that we expect to see as they spend the winter on Long Island Sound. You will also get to help submit our findings to the bird count website and learn how you can submit your backyard counts too!

Please dress in warm layers and bring binoculars if you have them (some loaner binoculars will also be available). For more information on the Great Backyard Bird Count, visit gbbc.birdcount.org.

This event is FREE.  Donations are appreciated.

For questions and to RSVP, please contact Ryan MacLean at Ryan.MacLean@audubon.org or call 203-930-1353.

Greenwich Audubon Center is a vibrant nature education center located at the main 285-acre Audubon sanctuary in Greenwich. We are a part of the Audubon Connecticut state office of the National Audubon Society and Atlantic Flyway, and steward a total of seven sanctuaries in the Greenwich area. Our mission is to protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. Visitors are welcome to enjoy our miles of trails, nature programs, education resources, conservation-themed events, and nature store throughout the year. 

We support a diverse and inclusive environment, and welcome individuals of all races, physical and mental abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, ethnicities, and perspectives. We work with families to modify programs for accessibility where possible.
