GREAT BACKYARD BIRD COUNT

February 16—19, 2024

This is a free, fun and easy event that engages all ages.

Handouts and bird count list will be on our website, Facebook and in the library. 

The Great Backyard Bird count is a free worldwide, fun and easy event.

       Participating is fun and easy, and can be done anywhere you find birds.

Step 1: Decide where you will watch birds.

Step 2: Watch birds for 15 minutes or more, at least once over the four days, February 16–19, 2024.

If you are a beginning bird admirer and new to bird identification, try using the Merlin Bird ID app to tell us what birds you are seeing or hearing.

If you have participated in the count before and want to record numbers of birds, try the eBird Mobile app or enter your bird list on the eBird website (desktop/laptop).
If you already contribute to Merlin or eBird, continue what you are doing! All entries over the 4-days will count towards GBBC.
The Great Backyard Bird Count (birdcount.org) website offers an assortment of resources.

Any questions, please call the Limerick Public Library -  207-793-8975

  HAVE YOU UPDATED YOUR LIBRARY CARD YET?

Look at your library card and if it does not have a 14 digit bar code, please stop in to the library to get it updated.  

In the next few months, we will be joining a consortium of other libraries within Maine that will require a 14 digit bar code on our inventory as well as on our patron cards. 

Thank you for your help and getting these updated!
