The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual program of the Cornell University Ornithology Lab and the National Audubon Society. Seasoned and first time birders are invited to count the various species of birds at the park including eagles, song birds, and waterfowl. This is a self guided event. Spend as much, or as little time as you wish. For more information about this project, please visit the GBBC website at http://gbbc.birdcount.org.
