We are really, really excited about birds. Why? Because from February 12 – 15, 2021 it is the Great Backyard Bird Count!

What is the Great Backyard Bird Count? Each February, for four days, the world comes together for the love of birds. Over these four days people are invited to spend time in their favorite places watching and counting as many birds as they can find and reporting them to scientists. These observations help scientists better understand global bird populations before one of their annual migrations.

If you want to learn more about this fun activity, join us for our Great Backyard Bird Count Storytime with Allegheny Land Trust on Friday, February 5 at 11am. Space is limited, so reserve yours now!

Additionally, we’ve gathered a list of our favorite bird books to get our friends as excited about birds as we are! Learn all about birds and their habitats.

Find all of these titles and more through our online catalog or by clicking on the links in the image below.
