For the past two years I’ve participated in the annual bird watch promoted by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). This year the event takes place in the UK on the 26-27 January 2013. Many bloggers have taken superb photos of the birds that visit their garden and I’ll be trying to do this once again.
Bird watch is one of the world's largest wildlife survey events and the RSPB have a bird identification chart and counting sheet available from their website (link located above).
The Great Backyard Bird Count takes place in the USA on 15-18 February and information is available from http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/ (I’m not sure when other regions hold their events.)
Good luck taking photos if you’re taking part – I find photographing birds very challenging but so much fun too!
