Marion Audubon Society

The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is for everyone, from beginner birdwatchers to experts, and anyone can participate from anywhere in the world. Counting birds provides scientists and conservationists with a real-time snapshot of bird populations. Each checklist submitted during the GBBC helps the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Bird Studies Canada, and the National Audubon Society learn more about how birds are doing, and how to protect them and the environment we share. Last year, participants turned in more than 144,000 online checklists, creating the world's largest instantaneous snapshot of bird populations ever recorded. Please join us for the GBBC, Saturday, February 14 from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm at Tuscawilla Park in Ocala. Participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish). It's free, fun, and easy.

Together we can make our local birds count!

Florida is a great Place for Birding because of the vast numbers of resident and migrating bird species that can be found in the diverse natural habitats of the state. Fall and winter months bring migrating birds back to Florida and the number of reported injuries often increase.
