1. Plan to count birds for at least 15 minutes during February 15–18, 2008. Count birds at as many places and on as many days as you like—just keep a separate list of counts for each day and/or location.
As you can see from the image of South Carolina's 2007 results, there are plenty of reporting gaps in our state. We encourage everyone to spend AT LEAST 15 minutes during the four-day count to help extend the count coverage across the state. This is a tremendous opportunity for families to enjoy a fun, free and easy activity together!
