Great Backyard Bird Count-Bird Walk & Big Sit
The Great Backyard Big Count (CBBC) is an annual event sponsored by the National Audubon Society and Cornell Lab of Ornithology as a “citizen service” opportunity where expert and novice birdwatchers alike can submit their observations from anywhere they happen to be over a 4-day period with as little as 15 minutes of effect needed watching birds in their yards, neighborhoods or favorite birding patch. Here at the Preserve we have a couple of fun ways that visitors can be involved: on Saturday, Feb. 16 we will have a guided bird walk on the trails with Ranger Eric from 8:15am to 10:15am and a “Big Sit” with volunteers and guests stationed by our front garden’s bird feeders from 8:00am to 12:00pm. Space is limited for the Bird Walk but not for the Big Sit. To register for the bird walk, please call the Visitor Center at 928-684-2772.
