Kansas Winter Bird Feeder Survey
In lieu of conducting the Kansas Winter Bird Feeder Survey in 2017, bird watchers around the state are asked to participate in the annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). The GBBC is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds. Participants are asked to count birds from any location for as little as 15 minutes on one or more days of the event and report their sightings online at www.birdcount.org. Anyone can take part in the count, from beginning bird watchers to experts.
It’s free, fun and each checklist submitted during the GBBC helps researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and other bird conservation organizations learn more about how birds are doing and how to protect them and their habitats that we share.
The 18th annual GBBC will be held Friday, February 17, through Monday, February 15, 2017. Please visit the official website at www.birdcount.org for more information.
