Each month in 2018, Year of the Bird is sending out a call to action – ways you can help birds, and how you can help scientists learn more about bird species.
In February, it is the Great Backyard Bird Count, held February 16-19. Your sightings become part of a global snapshot that helps track the numbers, health, and movements of birds for scientists and conservationists. In the 2017 count, 6257 species were observed across the globe!
