Help spread the word with the Great Backyard Bird Count poster and press release.
You can print or email a Great Backyard Bird Count poster/brochure to distribute in your community. It's available on the GBBC web site along with a press release that you can send to your bird club or community newsletters to alert them about the upcoming count, February 16-19, 2007. If you'd like to receive copies in the mail, please email citizenscience@xxxxxxxxxxxx This year, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon are challenging bird enthusiasts to "Count for the record!" Please help by encouraging your friends and colleagues to take part. Greater participation provides a more complete record of where the birds are. Last year, participants submitted 60,616 checklists--just missing the all-time record by 433 checklists.
