Global Big Day in Arizona- 9 May
If you like to get out in the spring sunshine and count birds, you should sign up to participate in
the annual Global Big Day in Arizona on Saturday 9 May. The GBD, called by eBird, is coordinated in Arizona by AZFO and supported by local Audubon
societies and bird clubs and other interested organizations.
With hundreds of volunteers in the
field we will strive to get a "snapshot" of the spring migration, and most of all have fun! You can
be flexible about the time you spend in the field or you can just count birds in your yard. In 16 years of this spring migration count our highest state total is 312 species.
The count is organized by county, and if you want to volunteer, check out the list of county
coordinators. If you are in a county that doesn't have a coordinator, please consider offering to coordinate our efforts there.
