Year of the Bird
Get Involved

Make This Your Year of the Bird

Each month take small actions to make a difference for birds. October's featured action is to Help Spot, Count, and Record Birds. Everyday citizens like you can help scientists learn about bird behavior by entering bird info into eBird.org. This also helps us to know where birds are and to identify areas in need of habitat conservation support. Other actions like mow less, avoid pesticides, think organic, and save water make a difference too. Join the 2018 Year of the Bird celebration!
