Do you like to watch the birds visiting the feeder outside your window?

Birdwatchers are invited to participate in the Cheyenne High Plains Audubon Society Great Backyard Bird Count February 14th through the 17th.The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is offering the opportunity to get involved at no cost with a walk around Sloan’s Lake from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 15.

Stop by and stroll with members of the Cheyenne Audubon Society as they search for birds. Binoculars, identification cards and education is provided free of charge.

In 2013, Great Backyard Bird Count participants in 111 countries counted 33,464,616 birds. They documented more than one-third of the world’s bird species.

Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time.

Since then, more than 100,000 people of all ages and walks of life have joined the four-day count each February to create an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of birds.

Saturday’s event is geared toward kids and those interested should meet at the Paul Smith Children’s Village prior to the walk around the lake.

For more information,call Mark Gorges at 634-0463.
