Time to dust off your binos and field guides.

The Great Backyard Bird Count for 2011 started yesterday.

For those new to the Count:

1. Count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count. Count longer if you want to!

2. Tally the greatest number of individuals of each species that you see together at any one time. Optional: Print your regional bird checklist to get an idea of the kinds of birds you're likely to see in your area in February.

3. When you're finished, enter your checklists here on the website--enter a new list for each day and for each new location where you count. The deadline for data submission is March 1.
