Are any Palinites particiating in the Great Backyard Bird Count this year? It takes place Feb. 13 through Feb. 16.

If you are, there is a check list of information and hints about how to count and submit your scores. The following web site is very helpful. You can print forms in advance to help keep you on track.

I've never done this but would like to do it this year. Only a week from now... if you are interested.

The RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) does this type of survey occasionally in the UK.

I'm so embarrassed! I count birds for Cornell, but I'd forgotten about the Audubon count. I should do that--I've had some amazing birds this year.

The site says the count will take place Feb. 15-18, Patty. Is there another one before that?

That's what our newspaper said... 13-16. Maybe they are wrong, or maybe it depends on where you live in the country. The web site might get too bogged down if we all did it at the exact same time.

I just looked again. Is this the site you read, Judy? It says 13-16.

Does Oz have counts at other times of the year?

Ah, I see--the first link has the dates from 2008. The 2009 dates are February 13-16. Yeah, I'll probably participate.
