The Great Backyard Bird Count begins today and continues through Monday, February 18. This is the sixteenth year for the annual winter bird census, and for the first time, checklists can be submitted from anywhere in the world, not just North America. Registration is required beginning this year as well, but it only takes a moment to set up an account on the official website, and there is no fee.
