February-The Veep's Peep
PBC birders don't need an excuse to go birding. But, plan some of your birding this month to coincide with the Great Backyard Bird Count on February 13th – 16th. Simply tally the numbers and kinds of birds you see for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count and enter your results on the Great Backyard Bird Count website. You can count birds in as many places and on as many days as you like. Just turn in a separate checklist for each location and day. Last year, bird watchers from 135 countries documented close to 4,300 species -that’s about 43% of all the bird species in the world! Let's make sure Piedmont data is represented in this citizen science project!
Several events this month have been rescheduled from the originally scheduled date and/or time posted in the PBC 2014/15 Yearbook. Please take note of the changes below and plan to attend.
The Spring Adopt-A-Park Cleanup at Country Park on 2/28 will be held in the afternoon this year- from 1:00-3:00 PM. Lend a hand and support the PBC Conservation Committee and the community. For more information contact Tom Wear.
The Beginning Birder Walk at Price Park will take place on 2/22 from 1:30-3:00 PM. Dennis Burnette will lead this casual walk through Price Park. It’s a great opportunity for beginning birders to learn birding identification skills. Seasoned birders are also encouraged to attend to help share their knowledge.

“North Carolina is a great place for birding. And the Piedmont Bird Club is a wonderful group of folks to bird with!”
