Are you ready for the 2012 Great Backyard Bird Count?


The 2012 GBBC will take place Friday, February 17, through Monday, February 20. Please join us for the 15th annual count! 
The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent. Anyone can participate, 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.  
As it happens, unfortunately, for the second year in a row, I am going to be away from my favorite birding partner during the 2012 GBBC! Last year, she was in India while I was stuck in the US. This time its the other way around. Perhaps she will be able to get her class to participate. What about you? Will you spend a morning counting birds in your backyard next week?

What's happened to this blog? Is it "past tense"?
Would love to hook up with birders in the Fresno area--I'm relatively new to Fresno.
