For the birds

Posted: 12:25 PM ET

If you like birds, this Presidents Day weekend is the time to get out your binoculars. Thousands of birders, from novice to expert, will be looking skyward for the 11th annual Great Backyard Bird Count.

This event is not just for fun (although it is that).

Organizers of the Count want you to enter the types and numbers of birds you spot at . Last year, participants reported a record-breaking 11 million birds and more than 600 species. Scientists use the information to learn more about how birds in North America are faring and what that means for the environment.


The Count includes an online photo gallery and contest.

But new this year - participants can upload video of their sightings on YouTube and tag it “Great Backyard Bird Count.” The best clips will be posted on the Bird Count web site.

So whether you count robins for 15 minutes from your kitchen window, or make a four-day trek through an Arkansas swamp in search of the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker, the Great Backyard Bird Count wants to know what you see. Details are at .

And that couldn't be much more accurate right here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you just what did deliver the results. The article (parts of it) can be quite powerful which is possibly why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, although I can notice a leaps in logic you make, I am not really convinced of how you appear to connect your points which help to make the actual conclusion. For the moment I will yield to your issue but wish in the future you link the dots much better.
