St. Johns County Audubon Society rebuilds, supports Great Backyard Bird Count

By Martie Thompson

It’s almost time to dust off your binoculars and take part in the annual event where you join your neighbors to identify and count local birds. The Great Backyard Bird Count, sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Audubon Society, will be held Feb. 12 – 16. Locally, the newly rebuilding St. John County Audubon Society will offer support to backyard birders who would like to participate.
