OK, maybe President Obama is too busy trying to fix the economy to do the Great Backyard Bird Count. But what's your excuse?
Go to the window right now. Note the birds you see for the next 15 minutes. Go to www.birdcount.org and report them. Easy as pie. Even if all you can see is a crow or a pigeon, you can report that, and in doing so, be entered to win some of our great prizes.
And if you are really ambitious, put on your coat and go outside for a nice walk with your friends, family, or valentine. Note the birds that you see. Report at www.birdcount.org.
Have fun out there. And President Obama, you and your kids are welcome to join us for the count anytime!
Jefferson, Roosevelt (both), and Carter were all birders. When will we get our first real GBBC bird count from the White House?
