GBBC is a fine form of safe excitement for dullsters — watching birds and filling out checklists.

Participants count birds for 15 mites (or more if they wish) on one or more of the four days of the event — February 18, 19, 20, and 21.

Anyone can participate — beginning bird watchers to experts. It can be done anywhere — your own backyard or anywhere else in the world.
