Counting birds in a warm, weird winter

Listen to this story
Thousands of citizen scientists across the U.S. and Canada will get out their tally sheets for the 15th annual Great Backyard Bird Count this weekend. The survey begins Friday morning and continues through Presidents' Day.

Biologists at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Audubon are anxiously awaiting the data this year because of the warm winter weather across the country.

Todd Moe talks with Cornell's Pat Leonard about this year's count, and Adirondack bird guide Joan Collins for an update on bird sightings and migration trends in our region.
