Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) was the first online citizen science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time.
The GBBC is an annual four-day event that encourages bird watchers of all ages and abilities to identify and count birds and report their results. This helps scientists document where birds are, track changes in their numbers and gain a better understanding of birds in the winter. Visit the GBBC web page for more details.
The American Tobacco Trail would like to invite you to participate in the 19th annual GBBC by counting in your own backyard or attending a park program!
