New Hampshire Audubon’s annual Backyard Winter Bird Survey is coming up on February 13 and 14, 2016. Past participants will receive last year’s results with their 2016 forms in the mail this month. Please let us know if you haven’t received anything by January 31. You can also report on-line or print out the survey form from the BWBS website. If you’ve never participated, it’s a great way to have fun watching birds and contribute to our knowledge of backyard birds at the same time.

Anyone can participate in the Backyard Winter Bird Survey by counting the birds in their own backyard on the survey weekend and sending the results to NH Audubon on a special reporting form or reporting on-line. For more information on the survey and details on how to participate, visit the BWBS website.

To receive a packet by mail, e-mail bwbs@nhaudubon.org or call NH Audubon at (603) 224-9909.

(Note: this survey is for New Hampshire only – it’s separate from the nationwide Great Backyard Bird Count. We encourage people to do both.)
