Great Backyard Bird Count

Our Citizen Scientists and their families kept count of the birds they saw over the long Presidents’ Day Weekend!

In class, the students’ tallies of sightings by bird type were added together for the grand totals written on the eggs that you see in each “nest”.

Each checklist submitted during the GBBC helps researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society learn more about how birds are doing, and how to protect them and the environment we share.
