The Great Backyard Bird Count ~ Blue Ridge Bird Seed Company

The 23rd annual GBBC will be held Friday, February 14, through Monday, February 17, 2020. The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is a free, fun, and easy event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations. Bird populations are constantly changing due to many variables, and as such, participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the four-day event and report their sightings online at

To help engage in this years GBBC, Tom will be leading a Bird Walk on Saturday, February 15th at 8 am, starting out at the Marina. Plan to meet there or if you are unfamiliar with the area, plan to meet at the Bird Seed Company's parking area and caravan out at 7:45 am.

We look forward to seeing everyone Saturday morning or in hearing of your findings in your own backyards! Please make sure and keep an eye on the weather and prepare accordingly.
