Count some birds in your backyard this weekend

February 12-15 is the national Great Backyard Bird Count, and Urbana Park District is encouraging you to check out the birds right outside your window, and add your observations to the conversations. From the website: “Simply watch birds for 15 minutes or more, at least once over the four days, February 12-15, 2021, and tell us what you see!”

The site gives several options for how to submit your data. Then, take some cool bird photos and share them with Anita Purves Nature Center and Urbana Park District social media pages, using the hashtags #UrbanaParks #GBBC #birdcount.
