It’s time for the annual Great Backyard Bird Count! Every year since 1998, bird enthusiasts and nature lovers around the world have taken part in this four-day citizen science project to collect data on the distribution and abundance of bird species. In 2020, over 268,000 participants counted nearly 7,000 bird species in 194 different countries… and some of those birds were counted right here at the Huntsville Botanical Garden! At the Garden, we will have bird checklists and observation sheets available so that you can take part in this global event. You can stop by the front desk when you visit from February 12 through February 15 to pick up these free resources. If you're short on time, you can even leave your list with the front desk after completing your count, and our team will enter the data online for you.
