Audubon asks birdwatchers to report backyard bird sightings

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) - Valentine's Day is for the birds, and the New Hampshire Audubon Society is asking residents to count and report any they see in their backyards.

The annual Backyard Winter Bird Survey takes place this Saturday and Sunday.

The New Hampshire Audubon Society has run the survey since 1987. Its officials ask volunteers to spend as much or as little time gazing out their window and jotting down species they can identify.

Some species - such as the sharp-shinned hawk and Cooper's hawk - are difficult to tell apart. Audubon officials suggest participants just note "hawk species" if they can't tell them apart.

Forms and quick reference guides are available at the Audubon's website - www.nhaudubon.org - under birding.
