A few weeks ago, the Vermont Institute of Natural Science hosted a Great Backyard Bird Count event. For two days, birds were counted in a specific location every 15 minutes for four hours. Members of the public helped VINS staff keep an eye out — with the use of binoculars and telescopes — and tally up the numbers of species seen. The results were submitted to GBBC, and are used to help biologists throughout the world monitor bird populations.

Interesting results. And being a romantic at heart I loved the woodpecker story….:)
