Great Backyard Bird Count 2021


The 24th annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is coming  February 12-15 (Friday through Monday) and share your love of birds with the world.


The GBBC was one of the first online citizen science projects, also referred to as community science, to collect information on wild birds. GBBC was also instrumental in the creation of eBird back in 2002.


To participate, just go birding for at least 15 minutes anytime February 12th – 15th and enter your observations in eBird.


Count correctly. A lot of GBBC birding happens in backyards and often at feeders. Be sure to review our article on proper counting protocol at feeders.


Add photos. If you get nice photos during the GBBC weekend, or anytime, be sure to  add your photos to your eBird checklist. This is of course especially important to help document rare birds that you may find. Learn more on how to upload your photos and sounds. We also invite you to share pictures of yourself, family, or friends celebrating the joy of birds during GBBC.


Get eBird Mobile. If you have a smartphone and haven’t done it yet, download the eBird Mobile app and get going on in-the-field data entry this weekend. eBird Mobile makes it much easier to keep up with your observations and help us document all birds everywhere all the time!

THANKS to all who participated and pledged in the May 9, 2020 Bird-a-thon. Southeast Alaska tallied an incredible 130 Species. WOW! We had over 50 birders from around the panhandle.  Over $1000 raised. And a lot of fun was had!
