The Great Garden Bird Count - 2015

The Count will be on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th January. As usual it is organised in Normandy by the GONm (Groupe Ornithologique Normand).

This is a wonderful and long-running example of collaborative citizen-science.

Everybody can help!
Plan to spend a one-hour period on 24th or 25th for your observations.
For each bird species seen, record the greatest number seen at the same time.

Further instructions for submitting your observations, and other information, will be given to you in class.

The RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, in the UK) proposes a pdf file with information about the Garden Bird Count (click - opens new window) http://www.rspb.org.uk/images/BGBW_download_guide_tcm9-385127.pdf

You can also read very good information about feeding your garden birds, and about bird identification, at the RSPB site (click) http://www.rspb.org.uk/news/387868-top-10-bird-feeding-tips-this-winter.

Information in French is available from the GONm (click) http://forum.gonm.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=390&p=3857#p3857.
