A few times each year, people all over the world count birds together. Citizen science projects like the Great Backyard Bird Count help ornithologists (bird experts) understand how and where species of birds are thriving and shifting. Plus, joining in these events is a super way for kids to fall in love with their feathered friends, feel part of a large community who care about nature and get interested in science. Trick is, how do you participate with little kids?
