Great Backyard Bird Count

Great Backyard Bird CountParticipate in the next Great Backyard Bird Count: February 15 – 18, 2019
Wild Birds Unlimited is a Founding and Major Sponsor

GBBC is an annual counting of the birds. For at least 15 minutes on one or more of the count days, simply tally the numbers and kinds of birds you see and go online to submit your report at It’s that easy.

When you feed birds in your backyard, it shows that you value having a daily relationship with nature and that you are willing to take action to foster it. Your information becomes part of an extensive database that is analyzed by scientists to better understand important trends in bird populations, range expansions, habitat changes and shifts in migration patterns.

The GBBC is led by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society, with Bird Studies Canada.

Visit your local Wild Birds Unlimited store for more information and great products to help you count the birds. Find your local store.
