Great Backyard Bird Count:
Sunday 2/20/11 9:00am- noon (registration deadline 2/14/11)
Join Powell Gardens' Director of Horticulture Alan Branhagen as we participate in the 14th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count. You will be part of a team that identifies and counts the wealth of birds that frequent the visitor centers feeders. Beginners are welcome. Learn how to accurately count and identify winter birds. Observe them from the comfort of indoors if weather does not permit outside observation. Learn how to complete a birders checklist. Each checklist submitted by citizen scientists helps researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society learn more about how the birds are doing and how to protect them.
