Help us count the birds at Grace Farms! Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count is the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds.

Now more than 160,000 people join the 4-day count each February to create an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of birds.
