Have any of you done this before? I think it would be fun to do with the kids, and plan to do it at least one day during the count. I got online at my library and was able to reqest a guidebook for birds of the east coast-- so hopefully that will help us identify some of the different ones.
Want more information? This link tells you how you can participate. The count begins on February 13th and only runs til the 16th. So make your plans, gather your resources, and start counting!
PS. For all you homeschoolers, this counts as science... but don't tell the kids! They'll just think it's fun! Check out their page for kids to help you make it a full blown unit study, complete with information, games and coloring pages.
