Thanksgiving Bird Count

Although not nearly as well-known as the Christmas Bird Count, the Thanksgiving Bird Count nevertheless has many adherents. Started in 1966 by Dr. Ernest Edwards and the Lynchburg (Virginia) Bird Club, more than 400 Thanksgiving Bird Counts are now conducted annually in the U.S., from coast to coast. What better way to relax after feasting on turkey, pumpkin pie, and everything-in-between than to lie back for an hour and count the birds coming to your backyard feeder to enjoy their Thanksgiving treats?
