Great Backyard Bird Count Results

The tallies are not all in, but Texas is making a great showing in the GBBC again this year. As of Feb. 22, Texans had reported 337 species and 435,584 individual birds - good enough to put Texas in first place in each category. Texas is fifth on the total checklists submitted behind New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Virginia.

The Houston area is making a good showing as well. So far, Houstonians have reported 129 species from 112 checklists.

If you have not submitted your checklists, you have until Feb. 24 to do so.
