Argh! The same thing happened this year as last year! For the last few weeks we've had tons of birds at our feeders. We've seen a ton of juncos, goldfinch, titmice, cardinals, woodpeckers & even a big fat robin. All of a sudden the weekend of the GBBC comes along & NO BIRDS! The entire 4 days I saw no more than 5 goldfinch. That's it! Where the heck did they all go???

I am on my way counting all the different birds. I see mostly cardinals, titmice, chickadees, and gold finches. There are a load of woodpeckers too! I just love doing this each year.

Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!

I am interested in doing this because we have moved to a new home and out of the city. We have a river on one side of us and a resvore on the other and we have lots more birds

I'm so glad someone posted about this event. I am a GBBC ambassador & you can find out more about the count here www.birdsource.org/gbbc/ .

Blackheart-yes, you can count the bird wherever you are, it doesn't have to be in your backyard.

The guidelines are pretty simple. You can count on any or all days 2/13-2/16 in the US. They ask that you watch for at least 15 minutes at a time & record the maximum number of a particular type of bird you see at any one time. (i.e. so if you see 4 cardinals at your feeder you would report 4 cardinals vs seeing 1 cardinal at your feeder 4 times, that would only count as 1). There are also guides online to help you determine what birds you are viewing if you have any doubts about your identification abilities. Let me know if you have any questions & don't forget to count the birds!

I know about these but have never participated before. Actually I'll be out of town that weekend. I wonder if I can count the birds I see at the place we are going to.
