It’s been a tradition for about 13 years. The Great Backyard Bird Count begins Friday. It's a four day family fun event that can help scientists map bird migrations and habitats. Kevin Lair, owner of Wild Birds Unlimited in Bend says he's been helping with the count for years: "My wife, myself, our sons have been doing it for years. They really enjoy it. It’s something we do anyways. We pay attention to the birds, and enjoy watching the birds coming into our yards. This is just a little more formal in that we take 15-20 minutes each morning and really keep track and note the different species and the numbers of individuals that are coming in. It's kind of fun to try to make the lost as large as possible and try to beat previous years." Lair says it's very simple. All you have to do is tally the birds you see in a 15 minute to two hour space at least once during the 4 days. Then log on to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology website and record your findings. There are links to help you identify the birds. Lair says its truly amazing at the various species of birds that reside in the high desert. Find more information on their website- we have a link on our “Links” page. You can also record your count there.
