Almost Survey Time
The time for bird counts is almost here.
The NH Audubon Society's Backyard Winter Bird Survey will be held February 9-10, 2013.
The Cornell Great Bachyard Birdcount is going global this year, so you don't have to live in the USA or Canada to participate. The dates are February 15-19, 2013. They have also supplied great buttons if you want to place them on you blog or FaceBook page (there are a total of 5 buttons) and there are also two posters if you want to print them out and post them at work or other places.
I just saw something new;,Project Feeder Watch, which watches birds thru April 5, 2013 and they are taking new members until the beginning of February. Just be aware there is a participation fee that is used to support the administrative costs..
So, if you have a birdfeeder, or watch birds, join in on one or more watches
It was a surprise to me when I started getting emails on Project Feeder Watch. I opted not to participate in that, but we will do the GBBC again this year.
We have a life membership in the Kansas Ornithological Society and get their list serve emails, daily; so, I have no excuse for ignorance concerning what's going on in the bird watching world. I know that Elder Brother is on their list serve, too - he steered me to it - but, I don't know whether he is still a member. Probably - even though he lives in Colorado. He is impressed by the Kansas wildlife management systems with which he has dealt.
