The Great Backyard Bird Count is a 4-day event that that takes place each February and is designed to engage bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are around the world.
Everyone is welcome--from beginning bird watchers to experts. It takes as little as 15 minutes on one day, or you can count for as long as you like each day of the event. It's free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds.
Participants tally the number of individual birds of each species they see during their count period. They enter these numbers on the GBBC website.
To learn more about the GBBC, or to enter a checklist please visit: www.birdcount.org
When you feed birds in your backyard, it shows that you value having a daily relationship with nature and that you are willing to take action to foster it.
Like many of us, if you have been feeding birds for a while…you probably have a reputation. Your friends, neighbors and relatives likely see you as a person who loves nature, and they value your willingness to share the enjoyment of “your” backyard birds at a moment's notice.
Your hobby and your backyard truly count as things that bring you joy and are important to you.
The Great Backyard Bird Count gives you the opportunity to make them count even more than ever by participating in this annual event which links citizens with scientists in an effort to collect important data about backyard birds.
The GBBC is a joint project of Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society and is sponsored by Wild Birds Unlimited. It takes place each February. Count the birds in your backyard, and then simply report the information online at http://gbbc.birdcount.org/.
Your information becomes part of an extensive data base that is analyzed by scientists to better understand important trends in bird populations, range expansions, habitat changes and shifts in migration patterns.
Make your backyard count even more for the birds when you participate in this year’s GBBC. And to ensure the birds all show up to be counted, visit our store for the widest variety of great bird food products!
We also have the freshest bird food in town, and we can prove it. Our exclusive regional blends aren’t just fresh; they’re specially formulated from 100% edible seed that your backyard birds will love.
Wild Birds Unlimited is here all year long for the birds in your yard, not just in the winter. Our seed and birdfeeding products are the reason we're in business. We never move our bird seed and feeders to accomodate the seasonal trends as garden centers and big box stores do.
Wild Birds Unlimited doesn’t just sell bird feeders, birdhouses, bird baths and bird food. We pride ourselves on being able to give you the most accurate information and knowledge about your local birds. It is our goal for you to have the best possible experience from your bird feeding hobby. Backyard bird feeding is the most relaxing, fulfilling, educational and exciting hobby that anyone, young or old, can enjoy.
