The Great Backyard Bird Count

The Great Backyard Bird Count takes a snapshot of birds around the world, asking people to take a tally of feathered visitors to birdfeeders, backyards and in nature. On Long Island, look for nuthatches, ring-necked pheasants, red-tailed hawks, as well as blue jays, cardinals and other birds.
