Backyard Birding in Merida, Yucatan and Beyond: Parakeets and Pair O’Keets, Olive-throated Parakeets
Sign up for the count, February 14 to 17, wherever you are! Then post the results of your sightings in the Yucatan or wherever you are, by commenting on this post!
Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count (en español – Contando Aves en Comunidad)was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time.
Since then, more than 100,000 people of all ages and walks of life have joined the four-day count each February to create an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of birds.
You are invited to participate! Simply tally the numbers and kinds of birds you see for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count, February 14-17, 2014. You can count from any location, anywhere in the world!
If you’re new to the count, first register online [hyperlink to create account page] then enter your checklist. If you have already participated in another Cornell Lab citizen-science project, you can use your existing login.
