The Great Backyard Bird Count

Each year people from around the world come together to watch, learn about, count, and celebrate birds during the Great Backyard Bird Count. This year's count is Friday, February 12 - Monday, February 15, 2021.

Audubon Society of Rhode Island naturalists and educators will be participating in the count at the Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium in Bristol, RI. Follow along on social media as we post our findings each day, or simply check back here for the link to our eBird lists. Our counts will take place in the morning and afternoon and last for at least 15 minutes, per the Great Backyard Bird Count rules. If you happen to visit the Center as we're heading out for a count, you are more than welcome to join us!
