Hey, with this yucky weather it's a great day to stay snug inside with a cup of coffee and COUNT! Today is the first of four days of the Great Backyard Bird Count. This year we're hoping folks will reach out to a friend or a co-worker and encourage them to count too. Check out the website for information on how to: www.birdsource.org/gbbc
And a big THANKS to Wally Elton of the Ascutney Audubon chapter for a GREAT piece on VPR this morning on the count. I really liked the way he emphasized how counts like the GBBC and CBC have helped folks (scientists & birders) learn more about bird populations and take action to help declining species or to help understand diseases that effect birds like West Nile. Wonderful segment, thanks again!
Happy counting everyone!
