Bird-watching doesn't end where the city begins. In fact, some species have adapted well to city life, giving people in urban areas a great chance to develop and practice their skills as bird-watchers.
The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is trying to make the most of this opportunity with Celebrate Urban Birds. This program is part of the lab's Citizen Science efforts, which enlist the public in the collection of data about birds.
Celebrate Urban Birds gets people in cities interacting more with nature, gives them a chance to contribute to science, and helps scientists gather important information about birds.
With just 10 minutes of observation, you can make an important addition to our collective knowledge about birds.
