Counting…and Flying…Together

GBBC-0Each February, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society conducts a world wide bird count, where anyone can record and register the number of bird species they see over a 4 day period (February 15-18, 2019). The information submitted helps scientists track the increasing and declining numbers of species from year to year. It shows the patterns of bird movement around the world. It is held each February to gather numbers before the spring migration takes flight in March. The process was so simple – the count can be done from anywhere, anytime, for about 15 minutes or more. The counts are entered into the database and results are calculated according to the mapping of the counts. What an amazing World Wide effort!
