February 14-17, 2014 – Great Backyard Bird Count

This is our third year participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC).  The GBBC is an annual citizen science project run through the Cornell Lab of Ornithology enlisting folks all across the country to census resident birds that have made it through the winter time. This project is just one way for you to get involved in the ever-growing realm of citizen science and learn about birds while doing it!  We will be surveying the grounds of the Mill every morning starting shortly after sunrise from Friday, February 14th through Monday, February 17th for about an hour each morning. We encourage volunteers to join us on any of these mornings as it is much easier to spot birds with multiple pairs of eyes! Please email cidermillfriends@gmail.com to schedule a morning to come out, make sure to dress appropriately, wear sturdy shoes and bring your binoculars.
