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 www.birdcount.org 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.
