For those who were wondering:
The Great Backyard Bird Count happens once a year. They do it to see how many birds/species can be found in a short time period. (I do it for the competition.) People all across the world participate in it. All you have to do is look for birds around you, keep track, and post them in a checklist on their site.
If you want to participate in it, here is the link:
If you didn't know, it is sponsored by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology. (They have allaboutbirds.com)
If you are going to participate, keep in mind, they do ask you for your real name. Also, when you post your checklists it will show the location where you found them. But, you can make your name and checklist private instead of public in settings. That means no one can see them but you. And you can also switch your name to Anonymous. It also takes very little time to upload your findings so it's fun and easy.
- I'm participating this year!

- Count me out this time.
