BLYTHEWOOD, S.C.

Following the count, participants will submit their observations online to Birdsource and finish the morning with a cup of hot coffee or cocoa.

The GBBC at Camp Discovery is free, but pre-registration is required at www.campdiscoverysc.org.

A project of Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon, the Great Backyard Bird Count is a citizen science project that involves birders of all levels of experience observing birds at a stationary location throughout North America during the count period of Feb. 12-15. Information collected and reported online will assist scientists in tracking changes in bird distribution and help determine how the winter weather influences bird populations.
