Bird Fest
Do you want to learn what birds are in your backyard? Do you want to help scientists take a snapshot of their populations? You can do both Saturday, Feb 16 at Bird Fest from 10 am  2 pm at the Burien Community Center. This free event offers families, friends and neighbors a chance to learn about their local birds and plants and to participate in the annual Great Backyard Bird Count.

There will be presentations, counts, booths and activities for all ages. Stay tuned for participating partners! Family and bird-friendly activities will include hourly walks and counts, identification games, touching bird skins and mounts, dissecting owl pellets, crafting a pair of binoculars and other activities for children.

The Environmental Science Center is coordinating Bird Fest with sponsorship from the City of Burien, with a focus on native plants. It promotes the Great Backyard Bird Count, a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society with partner Bird Studies Canada and is made possible in part by founding sponsor Wild Birds Unlimited. In 1998, this was the first online community-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time. Last year, 240,418 worldwide bird watchers helped in the four-day count to create an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of birds.

If you help count on Feb. 16, we'll enter those species into eBird, which is the global online program collecting bird observations every day of the year. If you cannot be at the fest, count that weekend or count whenever you can and submit your findings on eBird. Just 15 minutes can make a big difference for birds!
