Final Call for the 2009 GBBC

A roadrunner in a tree off my apartment deck. Phoenix, AZ.
Great Backyard Bird Count 2008.

Got 15 minutes? Wanna watch some birds, see your results posted online, and further conservation efforts...all from your backyard? Well, you have one more day to do it. The Great Backyard Bird Count, a project by the National Audubon Society and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, runs Feb. 13-16, 2009. Anyone can participate: novice and expert birders, kids and adults, adults who are still kids...

I posted on this last year, but was remiss in doing so in advance this year. Nevertheless, I'll be taking a short time out Monday morning 2/16, or sometime late afternoon (when the birds are most visible) to jot down all avian visitors to the Veggy House in Corvallis, OR. I hope you'll join me with a bird count from your neck of the woods.
