Calling birders: Science needs your help
The annual Great Backyard Bird Count starts Friday, and scientists want your help.
Why it matters: The bird sightings you submit will provide key insights into migration patterns, as species decline from habitat loss because of development and climate change.
- Wildfires across the West, for example, have devastated migratory bird populations in recent years — though the full extent remains unknown.
What to know: Organizers provide an easy guide to participate, and local birding groups also are putting together events.
- The annual bird count runs from Friday through President's Day.
