Participation is easy and typically done as a group, but you can also do it solo. Birding can be done in a park, preserve, green space, city, or in your backyard. All that is needed is to
- first, have an eBird account
- then watch birds for 10 minutes or more on the second Saturday in May (this year it’s May 13th from midnight to midnight)
- and finally, submit your observations on eBird.
If you need instructions about how to use eBird, go here for a short free class about the essentials of the program.
