Citizen Science Projects Are One Of the 7 Simple Actions to Help Birds

Participating in local or global bird species counts help scientists determine populations numbers, dispersion, migratory habits, and many other important data.  You can take part by watching the birds at your feeders and submitting your count sheets.  Anyone interested in birds can participate - including children, families, individuals, classrooms, retired persons, youth groups, nature centers, and bird clubs.
