B'ham Audubon Presents: Great Backyard Bird Count

Register here:

Seasonal bird counts have been a central part of Birmingham Audubon’s work ever since its founding in 1946. This year, we’re continuing that tradition with four great counts, including two field trips in support of this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count.

The first of these half-day trips takes us to the Birmingham Zoo for a fun morning spent counting our city’s winter birds.

The details: Meetup is at 8 a.m. in front of the zoo’s main ticket booths, accessible from Cahaba Road. As always, remember to bring plenty of water and snacks, rain gear, and seasonally appropriate (i.e., warm) attire. If you have your own binoculars, you’ll definitely want to bring them along—we’ll have only a limited number of loaners on hand.

(Questions about accessibility? Email us for more information about how we can meet your needs.)

The birds: You’ll find the latest eBird records for the zoo here.

Count leaders: Matt Hunter (205-915-8186) leads this trip.
