This event is in connection with Cornell University's Great Backyard Bird Count. The data collected from this program will be used to monitor the abundance of bird species, locally and globally. Everyone is welcome -- from beginning bird watchers to experts. This is a great activity for family and friends! It's free (parking fees apply), fun and easy and it helps the birds.
