The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is a free and easy event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations. The 24th annual GBBC will be held Friday, February 12 through February 15, 2021. Participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the four-day event and report their sightings online at birdcount.org.
