It’s here! The Great Backyard Bird Count is live! We’d love to know what you’re seeing in your corner of the world this morning.
Doing the GBBC is easy:
- Watch birds anywhere, anytime from Feb 12–15. Then tell us what you find.
- Merlin is the easiest way—just ID your bird and then tap “This is my bird!” to start the process. Here’s more info on how to download the app, sign in, and report your sightings.
- Alternatively, use eBird Mobile to report larger lists of birds.
- Repeat! Count as many times as you like across the 4 days of the event—every sighting helps our global total grow! By entering your sightings, you’re automatically entered to win ZEISS binoculars.
Still have questions about participating? We’ve got lots of help for you online. Here’s our How to Participate page, plus a whole set of pro tips to help you get the most out of eBird Mobile and Merlin apps.
So take a brief birdwatching break, enjoy your favorites, and look for surprises—you never know what you’ll find! Birding is better when it’s shared: tell folks what you’re seeing on social media with #GBBC.
Enjoy these precious moments with birds and nature,
Your friends at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology
