Great Backyard Bird Count in West Virginia

Mark your calendars for February 16-19, the dates of the 2007 Great Backyard Bird Count.

Following spotty coverage in West Virginia in the first few years of the GBBC (it was initiated in 1998), the State’s birders seem to have finally warmed up to the idea of participating in a multi-day mid-February bird count to document the status of common birds across the country.

Results were reported from 9 Eastern Panhandle localities in 2006, with a total of 3,550 individuals of species tallied on 63 checklists. Will this be the year that a Rufous Hummingbird is reported on a West Virginia GBBC for the first time?
