The latest science shows that two-thirds of North American birds are threatened by climate change, there is no better time to get involved in the effort to gauge that impact.

The 23rd Annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) begins on Valentine’s Day, Friday, Feb. 14, and continues until Monday, Feb. 17.

The GBBC is a free, fun, and family-friendly way to support bird conservation. Here’s how it works: spend as little as 15 minutes on one or more days of the count tallying birds in your community, and then submit your lists online.

The data collected by volunteers from around the world powers conservation initiatives and helps the Audubon Society better understand how climate change will impact the birds we all love.

All it takes is 15 minutes to make a difference. Visit to learn how to participate in this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count.
