The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is an annual four-day event that encourages bird watchers of all ages and skill levels to count birds and report their results online to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.  The data collected gives useful information to scientists, which enables them to better evaluate fluctuations in bird populations. Visit www.birdsource.org/gbbc for more information!

Wake County Parks staff encourages you to participate by joining us for our counts and by counting in your own backyard! Our parks are offering programs (listed below by order of date) and events to encourage your involvement in GBBC!
Whether you’re an avid birder or a beginner who wants to learn more about local birds, the GBBC is for you!

Check in with us next year on specific activities at each of our Wake County Parks!
