I participated in this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). I counted my backyard birds Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, February 16, 17, and 18.

Checklists flooded into the count at an unprecedented rate, breaking records for most checklists submitted in one hour (1,944), and breaking the all-time GBBC record of 61,049, and reports are still coming in! There was an amazing response of participants from around the United States and Canada.

This year’s recordbreaking statistics

Total Checklists Submitted: 79,087
Total Species Observed: 626
Total Individual Birds Counted: 10,835,607
