Feb. 16-19—Rutland County Audubon invites you to participate for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the Great Backyard Bird Count, Feb. 16-19. Count from any location, anywhere in the world, for at least the minimum time slots of 15 minutes each, or as long as is wished! This is the perfect birdwatching citizen science project for kids, families and new birders. More information and count instructions are available at birdcount.org.
VINS also participates in the Great Backyard Bird Count, Feb. 17-19. Enjoy watching birds at the feeders? Want to learn more about helping the birds in the community? Then put those bird watching skills to work at VINS in Quechee as they celebrate the Great Backyard Bird Count with activities for all ages and ways to improve birding skills. Participation is included in VINS admission. For more information, visit vinsweb.org.
