2017 Great Backyard Bird Count is Coming!

Yellowstone Valley Audubon Society is inviting science classes, Scout troops, and other student and youth groups to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count, February 17-20, 2017.  Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time.  Participants new to the count are directed at birdcount.org to create a free online account to enter their checklists.
