Great Backyard Bird Count
February 12-15

Click the GBBC link above or poster below to learn
more about the Count and to get involved.


Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time.

Since then, more than 100,000 people of all ages and walks of life have joined the four-day count each February to create an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of birds.

You are invited to participate! Simply tally the numbers and kinds of birds you see for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count, February 12-15, 2016. You can count from any location, anywhere in the world!

If you’re new to the count, first register online then enter your checklist. If you have already participated in another Cornell Lab citizen-science project, you can use your existing login.




Capturing Birds In Flight
at Blackfish Café . . .
ASLC's 2016 Winter Fundraiser
Exhibit and Sale
Reception February 21


Nearly everyone is captivated by the beauty and grace of bird flight, but it’s particularly challenging for photographers to catch this beauty and grace with a camera. ASLC members Jack Doyle and Nagi Aboulenein have provided over twenty-five framed photographs of birds in flight for display and sale at the Blackfish Café from now through March. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these donated works of art supports ASLC’s education and conservation programs in Lincoln and Tillamook Counties. Blackfish Café and the Audubon Society welcome you to a champagne reception to meet the photographers at the Blackfish Café on Sunday February 21, 3:00 PM -4:30 PM. Reception is free, yet donations to the Audubon Society of Lincoln City are welcome.

Sale proceeds support ASLC’s "Wild About Birds" outreach program for Lincoln and Tillamook County elementary students. "Wild About Birds" is one of the national Audubon Society’s award-winning Audubon Adventures programs. The program supports a variety of language arts and science education goals through introducing students to bird diversity, building their bird observation skills, and increasing their awareness of birds in their environment. Lincoln City Audubon’s education coordinator, Caren Willoughby, is scheduling 2016 spring classroom programs now and hopes to offer the program to over 300 students in Lincoln and Tillamook Counties.
