Great Backyard Bird Count at Greenwich Audubon Center

Register

Join Audubon Naturalists to participate in this nation-wide bird count! We will learn how to identify + count our backyard songbirds at the Greenwich Audubon bird feeders and take a brief walk through our Apple Orchard to find other wintering bird species. Afterwards, we'll submit data of what birds we saw to an online database and show you how you can do the bird count at home!

This IN-PERSON program has a limited capacity of participants and will be held entirely outdoors. All participants are required to wear a face mask covering for the duration of the program.
