Posted by Olson Library Staff
During the 4-day period from February 15th through February 19th, we encourage you to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). Being a citizen scientist involves going outside for as little as 15 minutes (or, as long as you like beyond that) and counting all the kinds of birds you see. Then, go online at to report your findings. You will help Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Audubon Society in their work to preserve and protect birds. Last year over 160,000 lists were reported from places all over North America and elsewhere in the world. At around 2:15 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Monday, we will walk around the block on which the library is located to count birds. Anyone interested in helping to count is invited to join. We will enter your counts on the website if you wish or enable you to enter them yourself.
