Backyard Bird Count Events

The ANNUAL Great Backyard Bird Count!

A joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Audubon Society

Bird watchers of all ages count birds to create a real-time snapshot of where birds are each February. This is a very important community science project the Nature Center facilitates with the support of the community.

Thank you to everyone who joined Bob Jones Nature Center as we kicked off our community’s 2017 Great Backyard Bird Count with a Guided Bird Count & Hike led by Dr. Ray Chancellor and Bluebird Workshop led by bluebird enthusiasts Jan LaPine and Mark Byrd. 

If you missed this year’s festivities, check out our Birds of Spring lectures on March 11 or join us on a Guided Hike any Saturday in April.

Stay tuned for details on the 2018 Great Backyard Bird Count.
