Great Backyard Bird Bird Count February 16-19

Counting birds?  If you've never done it before, you're missing out on a good time.  For the past 20 years, the Tri-Moraine Audubon Society has participated in the Great Backyard Bird Count, which takes place this year on February 16-19.  It's easy to join in: just go to and key in your zip code.  A whole checklist of birds will appear and you'll be on your way to identifying and counting.  Bonus:  all ages enjoy this activity.
