Bird charity RSPB launches 'Big Birdwatch' survey
« on: January 28, 2010, 06:42:02 am »
According to the BBC...

The world's largest wildlife survey, dubbed the "Big Garden birdwatch" is being launched by the UK's Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. The charity hopes that around half a million people will record the abundance of different bird species visiting their gardens and open spaces.

This year the survey, which starts on Saturday, 30 January, will be particularly useful in helping conservationists understand the impact of the "big freeze" on bird populations, and whether some species have suffered or changed their behaviour more than others.
