Thursday, February 4, 2021, 6:45 PM. Due to COVID-19, our monthly meetings this fall (September through December) will be virtual meetings via Zoom. Our February meeting will be a presentation by Bo Howes of the Triangle Land Conservancy entitled, "The Importance of Conservation Land for Our Feathered Friends."
Join Audubon North Carolina and our flock of advocates as we meet with lawmakers and speak up for birds at Advocacy Day, on Feb. 10! This fun and inspiring day of action will be virtual, of course, so you can tune in from anywhere in the state as we talk with our senators and representatives about the importance of conservation funding and clean energy.
Advocacy Day is earlier than normal this year because we want to set the tone for lawmakers at the beginning of the session. Be a force for good in the New Year: Register now!
The 24th annual Great Backyard Bird Count, sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society, will be held Friday, February 12, through Monday, February 15, 2021. <a href="https://www.birdcount.org/participate/">Click here</a> for instructions on how to participate or <a href="https://www.birdcount.org/">click here</a> for the official GBBC website. We have created a checklist of local birds that you can use to keep track of the birds you see in your "backyard." All the birds on the checklist may not be in your backyard since it includes forest birds, grassland birds, and water birds. But it will give you a good idea of which birds are normally in our area. Please be sure to submit all your actual bird sightings as explained <a href="https://www.birdcount.org/participate/">here</a>. Each checklist submitted helps us learn more about how birds are doing and how to protect them and the environment we share.
