By counting birds, we can create a clearer picture of bird populations and their health around the world. Get involved in the 23rd Annual Great Backyard Bird Count, February 14-17, 2020.
Thanks to all the Great Backyard Bird Count participants from this year and past years! The information provides an historic snapshot into world bird populations.

Our favourite entries in last year’s Great Backyard Bird Count Story Contest were so delightful, we wanted to read them again! We hope they inspire you to participate in the 2019 Great Backyard Bird Count and submit your own story.
