This morning Patrick and I went out to the Blacktail Creek & Ulrich-Schotte Nature Trail in Butte, Montana, just a minute or two from our neighborhood. We looked for birds to participate in Audubon/Cornell Lab’s citizen science program The Great Backyard Bird Count 2010, which is:
an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent. Anyone can participate, from beginning bird watchers to experts. It takes as little as 15 minutes on one day, or you can count for as long as you like each day of the event. It’s free, fun, and easy—and it helps the birds.
A fine way to celebrate Darwin Day – I’m not the only one.
